Home » Guides » Florida » State Road 152 - Baymeadows Road

State Road 152 travels 6.42 miles across the Southside of Jacksonville between SR 13 at Goodbys Creek and Interstate 295 (East Beltway) at the Deerwood community. The east-west route starts as a five-lane boulevard between the Briarwood and Craven residential areas before expanding into a four-lane divided arterial east from the Deerwood Center business park and Interstate 95 to Deerwood Country Club and new development beyond the beltway.

A $6.6 million project reconfigured SR 152 along Baymeadows Road between Prominence Parkway, just west of Interstate 95, and SR 115 (Southside Boulevard). Road work underway from January 2017 to early 2018 added left turn lanes from SR 152 west to Prominence Parkway and Southside Boulevard, dual turn lanes at the intersection of SR 152 and Old Baymeadows Road and from Western Way to SR 152 west. Construction also realigned the southbound off-ramp from I-95 to SR 152 and closed a median 400 feet west of SR 115.1
