Interstate 95

Florida's East Coast expressway to Everywhere

Friday July 20, 2018

Florida's largest corridor heading north and south from Miami to Jacksonville it labeled Interstate 95. After fifty years of planning and construction this Florida highway is now complete (excepting small sections of modifications and repairs) and allows free interstate travel from Georgia into Florida and southward into Miami connecting eventually into US-1 and/or A1A going to Key West. Who knows if I-95 will continue one day to connect the last 60 miles of ocean to Cuba?

The Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways (commonly known as the Interstate Highway System, Interstate Freeway System, Interstate System, or simply the Interstate) is a network of controlled-access highways that forms a part of the National Highway System of the United States. "When I was a child of the sixties I witnessed the mass building of several interstates in Florida and on the east coast of the United States. It was a necessary building block to promote commerce and travel in our country, but simply ruined the small town atmosphere that we had prior to the 1960's when towns were smaller and people moved slower." states Captain Richard of Lagooner Fishing Guides.

The Disney movie CARS made referrence to what interstate travel and construction did to many of the small communities sidestepped by travelers hastening their ways to better places. Did it make our country stronger? Probably, but it took away the community we had and started and interstate tourism that made the US a coast-to-coast destination in an automobile.

Traveling north and south on I-95 you'll want to get off on one of the exits to get to one of our fishing destinations on the Space Coast.

  • Sebastian Inlet - Exit 156 [CR 512 (Fellsmere Rd.)]
  • The Banana River - Exit 205 [SR 528 (Beach Line Exwy.)]
  • The Indian River - Exit 215 [SR 50]
  • The Mosquito Lagoon - Exit 220 [SR 406]

If you're traveling Florida's east coast and in a hurry, i-95 is possibly the fast route north and south from Jacksonville to Miami. it's not a scenic highway, but it's a quick one.
