More lanes for Interstate 10

A $176 million project to widen Interstate 10 through Jacksonville's Westside is set to begin this summer. The project will add two general purpose lanes in each direction between I-295 and I-95, construct noise barriers at prescribed locations, reconfigure exits to reduce weaving and widen bridges at 19 locations. Weather and unforeseen circumstances permitting, the project is expected to be completed by early 2025. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will host an open house Thursday, February 4 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. to share information and answer questions regarding the project. Here is a look at what's planned. Read More
