St. Johns County is growing, but with all that growth comes traffic, as new retail stores and restaurants come to the area.

A new mixed-use development called “Fountains at St. Johns” at Interstate 95 and County Road 210 is coming to the area.

“We need some restaurants out here and other things there’s not a lot of out here,” says neighbor Marc Raymond.

According to the U.S. Census, St. Johns County is the 14th-fastest growing area in the country.

Jeannette Listing is concerned about more traffic on 210.

“Sometime it takes me a while to get home,” says Listing.

The developer expects to break ground in early 2019 and finish later in the year.
