So....

Looking at the maps I see a Racetrack road extension and a connection at Russell Sampson road...nevermind just my own question.

I was under the false assumption that it was going to connect up to St. Johns Parkway. Which is a nice and quiet drive at the moment when you want to take the back roads to 210, I was worried about it turning into San Jose blvd.

The road does end at St. John's Parkway south of the entrance to Creekside HS.  There is not an exit at Russel Sampson, just a flyover.

Thanks, I had trouble telling from the map. So my fears of that quiet drive ending over the next few years will come true!

Another road built in Duval mainly for the benefit of St. Johns.

Why did they name it "Peyton Parkway???" What did he do that was so great to deserve that honor?

I have to admit I laughed when I saw it is named after him. A one mile road.

I will be interested in seeing how the extra traffic on 9B is handled by the 4 lane to 2 lane mess on 9A. Can only get worse.

Maybe it'll be delayed 5 years and be 3x over budget so they figured they'll name it after him.

Peyton Parkway - when you own the property, you can name the road whatever you want. And it is a short road.

The situation north of 9B is why the state is adding those toll lanes.

If Gate donated the land to have the road built, who cares whose name is on it?

Actually St Johns County plans to connect that exit to Nocatee Parkway and call it "Durbin Parkway" so the Peyton name may be a very short distance.

And how many years after the new 9B/95 connection is open will those new lanes be open?
