Westside/Orange Park drivers should expect a traffic pattern change this morning. The Florida Department of Transportation is opening a new exit for Blanding Blvd from 295 South. It’s essentially a service road that will take you to Blanding Blvd and eventually Collins Road when that exit is opened.
FDOT says the “new exit is part of a $63.4 million project to build service roads parallel to I-295 near Blanding Blvd and Collins Road”. Officials hope this will “alleviate congestion” in the area.
