1 Public Meeting Presentation March 15, 2004

2 Project Location Project Purpose –Traffic reliever to I-95 –Integrate road with the Northwest Sector Plan –Connect Racetrack Road to CR 208 Study Objective –Determine the location of the roadway –Provide Right-of-Way Maps

3 Project History St. Johns County and Florida Department of Transportation “Variance Agreement” St. Johns County adopts a preferred location for the north/south roadway (CR 2209) as part of the “Sector Plan” St. Johns County adopts a “Northwest Sector Plan“ that includes the CR 2209 Corridor CR 2209 Preliminary Engineering Study begins The “Variance Agreement” with the FDOT requires the CR 2209 project to meet the following deadlines: –North Segment Right of way maps by December 2005 Construction to start by December 2009 –Central Segment Right of way maps by December 2006 Construction to start by December 2010 –South Segment Right of way maps by December 2007 Construction to start by December 2015

4 Corridor Study Recommendations Segment 1: LINK N2 –Provides direct connection to Racetrack Road –Supports a future connection to SR 9B –Avoids Durbin Creek crossing –Shortest segment length (3.1 miles) –Significantly fewer wetlands (22.5 acres) –Least construction cost ($8.0M) Segment 2: LINK C2 –Borders wetland providing additional buffer and protection –Forces development and access to one side (west) of the proposed roadway –Creates additional access to International Golf Parkway –Shortest segment length (8.0 miles) –Least construction cost ($20.4M) Segment 3: LINK S1 –Least wetland impact between S1 & S3 –No Six Mile Creek Crossing required as compared to S3 –Least construction cost ($7.8M) –Satisfies the “Variance Agreement” by connecting to CR 208

5 2001 Corridor Study Recommendations General Location for the Roadway Specific Design Items –Design Speed of 60 mph –Arterial Roadway with Intersections –Number of Lanes and Right-of-Way Width –Access Management Criteria

6 2001 Corridor Study Recommended Typical Sections SR 16 to CR 208 Racetrack Road to SR 16

7 Major Developments Approved Since 2001 –Nocatee –Aberdeen –Durbin Crossing –Samara and Palm Lakes –Vestcor Plantation –RiverTown

8 Future Roadwa y Projects

9 North Segment Racetrack Road to Russell Sampson Road (Phase 1)

10 North Segment Racetrack Road to Russell Sampson Road

11 North Segment Russell Sampson Road to CR 210

12 Central Segment South Approach to CR 210 Intersection

13 Recommended Design Criteria Arterial Type Roadway (Intersections/not Interchanges) Design Speed - 60 mph Access Management Class 3 Designation Rural Typical Section (Minimum Right-of- Way Width of 200 Feet)

14 Access Management Protect the Integrity of the Roadway System Provide Safety to the User PURPOSE

15 Access Management Focus Items Spacing of Signals Spacing of Median Openings Spacing of Side Road Connections Type of Median Type of Median Opening

16 SPEED >45MPH SIGNALS FULL MEDIAN OPENINGS CONNECTIONS 1 MILE 1/2 MILE 1/4 MILE CONNECTIONS CAN OCCUR EVERY 660 FEET SPEED <45MPH SIGNALS FULL MEDIAN OPENINGS CONNECTIONS 1 MILE 1/2 MILE 1/4 MILE CONNECTIONS CAN OCCUR EVERY 440 FEET Access Management Class 3
