Freeways

Jacksonville Freeway & Bridge Network: Jacksonville is one of the oldest cities in Florida. It is growing, but not explosively like Orlando. As a result Jacksonville has time to extend freeway system without as many dramatic traffic jams experienced in Orlando, which can’t build roadways fast enough. Jacksonville also has a downtown focus of activity, it has a beltway making it easy and to cross-navigate.
