St. Johns County receives a whopping $59 million boost for transportation and coastal protection initiatives.

St. Johns County government has been awarded $59 million in appropriations by the State of Florida. This funding surpasses the $12.4 million allocated last year, making it the largest amount received by the county so far. A significant portion of the funds- $25 million- will be used to completely restore North Ponte Vedra Beach, which has been critically eroded over the years. Additionally, $15 million has been allocated for the extension of County Road 2209 to International Golf Parkway, and another $19 million for enhancing safety along transportation corridors and coastal barrier islands.
