State Road (SR) 9B is a 7.4-mile freeway that links I-95 and I-295 at Southside Jacksonville. It also forms part of a bypass for commuters to get around downtown Jacksonville. It was developed in three phases, which began in 2010. The first phase extended south from I-295 to US-1. The second phase lengthened the route a half mile to link to I-95 near the St. Johns County line.
The third phase extended SR 9B 2.3 miles beyond I-95 to County Road 2209, and began in September 2015. Phase 3 aimed at connecting County Road 2209 (St. Johns Parkway) and a connector road off Race Track Road called Peyton Parkway to I-95 and the rest of SR 9B in Jacksonville. The project included construction of a single point urban interchange (SPUI) with Peyton Parkway, a new one mile connector linking SR 9B with Race Track Road. It also included nine bridge structures, four pairs of overpass bridges, prefabricated pedestrian bridge, full intelligent traffic system (ITS), and lighting. A new intersection at Peyton Parkway and County Road 2209 was constructed, providing direct access to and from Race Track Road. In addition to the roadway improvements, the project also included five retention ponds and bridges or overpasses at Race Track Road, Peyton Parkway, Durbin Creek, and Russell Sampson Road. SR 9B was fully opened to traffic in August 2018.
$79.7 million. The capital cost was $94 million with the final payment made February 2017.
