3 Major Construction Projects Underway in Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- There's no shortage of cones, barrels, detour signs, and delays in Jacksonville. It seems like almost everywhere you go on the First Coast, there's something under construction.

Major projects are underway on our interstates right now. So what's changing, when will it end, and is it all worth it? First, it's the project everyone's been talking about: the change from State Road 9A to the Interstate 295 beltways.

"I think it's great," one driver said. "I hope it works," another added.

Changing 9A to I-295 gets us federal funding, but Mike Goldman with the Florida Department of Transportation says it's more about consistency.

"It'll be a lot less confusing - what's 9A? What's 295?" Goldman said, adding that the plan had always been to make 9A part of the beltway system for 295.

Still, many of you say the beltway system is even more confusing.

Gas Prices Remain Stable

 

Retail gasoline prices remain stable as the price of a barrel of oil neared $100 again after multiple reports were released last week that showed positive acceleration for the U.S. economy. Single-family home purchases rose in November to a seven-month high as U.S. unemployment claims fell by 4,000 to 364,000 last week, reported the U.S. Labor Department.
