The empty exit at State Road 9B -- called "E-town Parkway" -- is currently closed, but Action News Jax has learned that construction on a new high-end housing developments will begin at the end of the year.
According to the builder, David Weekley Homes, E-town will be developed into 143 houses. It may also include parks, walking trails and restaurants.
Real estate attorney Ken Jacobs says E-town Parkway is strategically located in south Jacksonville.
Jacobs said the development, which is about halfway between the St. Johns Town Center and the brand-new Durbin Park development, is part of a familiar master-planned concept.
