Clay County and Duval County – Two locations on State Road 23 in the area considered the First Coast Expressway South project will be the sites of overnight detours this week, beginning tonight. The detour/closure schedule is as follows:
· Monday, July 10 and Friday, July 14 from 9 p.m. - 5 a.m.: full closure of northbound and southbound State Road 23 from Argyle Forest Boulevard to Oakleaf Plantation Parkway in Clay County to allow traffic shift work on State Road 23.
o Detour onto Oakleaf Plantation Parkway for north-south travel.

Once completed, this FCE South project will become part of an 18-mile-long SunPass administered toll road that connects I-10/U.S. 90 in Duval County to Blanding Boulevard (State Road 21) in Clay County. This project involves the section of the FCE from north of Argyle Forest Boulevard to Blanding Boulevard (State Road 21) in Middleburg, connecting to two other FCE projects, both north of this site. Work on this six-mile-long project began in May 2014 at an estimated cost of $85 million. FDOT hired Dragados USA to complete this project. Up-to-date lane closure information is available at www.nflroads.com and more FCE project information can be found at www.firstcoastexpressway.com.
