Will be traveling through Jacksonville enroute to Titusville Monday, 3/7. Will be in a Journey 39 with a Trail Blazer in tow. In looking at the map I note a bypass around Jacksonville and would like advice on which way to go?

TIA,
Russ

I usually travel straight through, although one time coming from the west, we traveled part of the by-pass. Whenever we've traveled through, there has been no great travel problem, but that can change with one accident ahead of you. So, take your choice.

I will normally go right through. Watch about half way through, past the hospital, the road continues on the left side so you have to be in the left lane. It is well marked and if you have a navigator it won't catch you by surprise.

The bypass seems to add quite a bit of time to the trip (Disney World for us). But as stated above we got tied up traffic created by an accident heading north and it did take some time to get through the area.

Happy traveling.

We always take the bye pass. May be a bit longer but is faster to drive. Normally has always been less traffic on the bye past at least when we've used it. When ever we've gone staight through we always get tied up in traffic. So for last several years we've used the bye pass.

For a number of years they were redoing the bridges and ramps and you are so right. It often got tied up. Lanes closed, etc. Last couple times though it was pretty quick and seeing Jacksonville is really nice.

They were redoing some areas of the by-pass last time through and that might have improved the roadway too. Once I got tied up in northbound traffic near the by-pass bridge that took me over an hour to get through. Never did find out the reason. But usually the by-pass flows. Just takes a bit longer I believe. But then having a toad the by-pass might be less nerve wracking.

Traffic can be horrendous at times on the straight-thru route (I95) and when it is, the bypass loop may be shorter in time and is surely far easier on the driver. But on Sunday morning, the straight shot is the way to go.

Thanks all for your responses. I still have no idea which way I will go but I know that if it is not rush hour I will go straight. If it is anywhere near rush hour, I will take the by-pass. We will overnight Sunday in Walterboro, SC and leave when we are ready (I hope I am getting this RV thing down as I am a new guy ) so I guess it is just part of the adventure? At least now I have the basis for a decision when I make it!

See ya down the road.....

Russ
