St. Johns County Makes Progress on Transportation Improvements

The St. Johns County Public Works Department updated the community on the progress it is making on more than 10 miles of road construction projects and other transportation improvements at the June 18, 2024, St. Johns County Board of County Commissioners Regular Meeting. The presentation can be viewed with the video-on-demand services the County’s Office of Public Affairs provides at

“You guys are doing so much work,” District 1 Commissioner Christian Whitehurst said. “This is going to be a massive improvement on our roadways once these projects are finished. Thank you for taking all of this on at one time.”

Public Works Director Greg Caldwell highlighted these projects during his presentation:

  • Longleaf Pine Parkway
    This project widens over four miles of Longleaf Pine Parkway from Roberts Road to Veterans Parkway from two to four lanes. It also includes installing a traffic signal at the intersection of Shetland Drive and Longleaf Pine Parkway.
  • County Road 210 (Greenbriar to Cimarrone)
    This project will begin at the current four lanes at Cimarrone Boulevard and extend west to the intersection of Greenbriar Road, a distance of approximately 2.3 miles.
  • County Road 2209 Central Segment
    This four-lane section is 7.7 miles from C.R. 210 to State Road 16. The current construction project is 3.9 miles from Silverleaf Parkway to S.R. 16.
  • County Road 210 Widening (I-95 to US 1)
    This project will complete the six-lane widening of C.R. 210 from Trinity Way to Beachwalk Boulevard. This includes the signalization at the intersection of C.R. 210 and Cumberland/Badger Park Drive.

Director Caldwell mentioned that the Capital Improvement Project Public Access Dashboard is available at and is a great way to stay informed on all transportation projects and projects for parks, stormwater drainage, and facilities. There are currently 100 projects with a budget of $340.7 million. The capital improvement project can sometimes create temporary road closures. The public can stay informed at on various road closures by the County and FDOT.
