Motorists to see more choices in their commute.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is expected to open the Southbound I-295 East Beltway Managed Lanes exit to mainline I-295 on Thursday, Dec. 22.
Starting Thursday, motorists who choose to use the southbound I-295 Managed Lanes will have a choice to exit on State Road 9B or exit to reconnect with I-295 just after Philips Highway (U.S. 1). During peak hours, motorists will pay a $0.50 toll for use of the Managed Lanes.
The I-295 Managed Lanes in Duval County are operating in “time of day” tolling, which means tolls will only be charged during peak travel times. Peak travel times along I-295 are from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.
During non-peak hours, tolls are not collected, and violations for users without a transponder are waived. Motorists considering using the lanes during peak hours are encouraged to obtain a SunPass or another interoperable transponder to avoid a toll violation.
More information about SunPass and transponder interoperability is available at www.SunPass.com.
