State Road 211

Home » Guides » Florida » State Road 211

State Road 211 is a segmented route paralleling the St. Johns River through central Jacksonville. Beginning from SR 128 (San Juan Avenue) in the Fairfax neighborhood, SR 211 follows Herschel Street north to Big Fishwier Creek, where it shifts east onto St. Johns Avenue. St. Johns Avenue navigates through a series of S-curves through the Avondale community, straightening out at Boone Park northeast to Riverside.

Prior to 2006, SR 211 ended at the intersection of Riverside Avenue and Post Street in Riverside, Jacksonville. There U.S. 17 & SR 228 took over along Riverside Avenue north into the Brooklyn community west of Downtown. With their alignment along Post and College Streets dropped from the state road system, SR 211 was extended northward along Riverside Avenue two blocks to I-95 (Fuller Warren Bridge) and Peninsular Place. The southern 3.723 mile segment of SR 211 concludes there.

Riverside Avenue (former U.S. 17) northeast 0.641 miles from Interstate 95 to the directional T interchange with SR 13 (Acosta Bridge) is locally maintained. The 0.271 mile section of Riverside Avenue at the exchange with the Acosta Bridge is state maintained and designed as SR 211. Beyond Broad Street, U.S. 17 split with SR 228, with the former taking the couplet of Bay and Forsyth Streets between Broad Street and U.S. 1-90 (Main / Ocean Streets) and the latter lining Water Street east. State maintenance along former U.S. 17 and 228 ceases east of Broad Street and the second SR 211 segment.
