On Monday, July 6, 2015, the southbound I-95 off-ramp to Philips Highway (U.S. 1) closed and is expected to reopen in approximately four months as part of the Florida Department of Transportation's (FDOT) I-95 Overland Bridge project. Read the full announcement here (pdf).
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) began January 14, 2013 to replace the series of overpasses that carry traffic over Hendricks, Kings and Montana avenues along 2.3 miles of I-95 near downtown Jacksonville in Duval County. Known as the Overland Bridge project, it will improve traffic flow along the I-95 corridor just south of the Fuller Warren Bridge. I-95 will be widened to provide an additional lane for southbound traffic. As the project is built, traffic will use parallel roadways, which upon completion of the I-95 bridge structures, will remain and provide additional capacity for traffic between the Fuller Warren Bridge and north of Emerson Street.
