Work on the newest segment of County Road 2209 near SilverLeaf and International Golf Parkway will start next month, according to St. Johns County officials.

The county conducted an official groundbreaking Thursday for the road improvement. The project will add 4 miles of four-lane road from SilverLeaf Parkway to State Road 16 with a sidewalk on one side and 12-foot wide multi-purpose path on the other.

“This project is more than just a road project and a sidewalk; it’s about building a better St. Johns County for the people of our community,” County Commissioner Sarah Arnold said.

Construction is set to break ground in January and will be completed in January 2026, weather permitting.

“It’s going to be such a major arterial road for St. Johns County and provides so much more relief for the western portion of the county,” said Greg Caldwell, St. Johns County public works director. “This ties in State Road 16 all the way to Race Track Road. It’ll also tie into the First Coast Expressway (eventually), so you’ll have access points from the west over to (Interstate) 95 — also straight up to (S.R.) 9B. So there’s the connections part of this project.”

This project will cost $32.5 million and is funded by FDOT grants of $26 million and Capital Improvement Project funds from the county.

Currently, the county is extending the existing box culvert across Mill Creek to accommodate the road widening project.

England-Thims and Miller Inc. led the civil design work, and J.B. Coxwell Contracting Inc. will be the contractor for the project.
