Starke Railroad Overpass Interchange Improvements
Overview

Construction on the Starke Railroad Overpass Interchange Improvements project began in the summer of 2020. J.B. Coxwell Contracting, Inc. of Jacksonville, was selected to complete this project.

Currently, the City of Starke is divided by the CSX railroad that runs parallel to U.S. 301. With 29 trains traveling through the city each day, emergency vehicles and other traffic experience frequent delays, and train traffic is expected to increase in the future. The overpass will ease congestion and improve emergency response times and allow traffic to flow more freely.

The project will include a bridge beginning east of U.S. 301 at Walnut Street and ending east of Church Street. One-way frontage roads will be constructed to allow local traffic to access Cherry, Church, Thompson, and Walnut Streets. The project also includes resurfacing of multiple streets and additional parking.

Additionally, follow FDOT District Two on Twitter at @MyFDOT_NEFL and MyFDOTNEFL on Facebook for updates.

Traffic Impacts
Cherry Street traffic impacts
February 10-16, 2024
Daytime and nighttime lane closures weekdays between U.S. 301 and St. Clair Street for bridge foundation work. Heading north, drivers will turn right onto Frontage Road (eastbound State Road 100), left onto Water Street, left onto Call Street, and arrive at North Cherry Street. Heading south on Cherry Street, drivers will turn right onto westbound Madison Street (westbound State Road 100), left onto Thompson Street, left onto Frontage Road (eastbound State Road 100) and right onto South Cherry Street.
Eastbound Frontage Road traffic impacts
February 10-16, 2024
Continuous road closure to through traffic in the vicinity of South Walnut Street for roundabout construction. Follow detours.
State Road 100 traffic impacts
February 10-16, 2024
Intermittent daytime lane closures from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays between U.S. 301 and St. Clair Street for equipment movement in and out of the work zone.
State Road 230 traffic impacts
February 10-16, 2024
Continuous road closure between State Road 16 and Water Street for construction operations. Follow detour. This detour route is required since the SR 230 Truck Route cannot access State Road 100 at Water Street due to placement of traffic onto the bridge. Future SR 230 Truck Route traffic will access State Road 100 through St. Clair Street which is currently under construction.
