Use I-295 to Bypass I-95 Traffic Headaches!

Everyone knows time is money!  When our customers need to deliver they count on all sorts of factors to get products to their customers including traffic headaches.  Sure, you can't always know where the accidents are, though some GPS's have features that alert you to traffic situations, but if you travel a lane on a regular basis your drivers probably know where those long term traffic nightmares are! Save time and money by coming to Southern Tank for your wash needs rather than sitting in traffic, we are located right off of I-295, a great way to avoid the I-95 traffic headaches....

Located off I-295 at exit 37, Pulaski Road exit, we are located at 1160 Easport Rd.  Whether you are traveling north or south on I-95, you can expect delays.  The Overland Bridge project impacts from the I-10 interchange to Emerson exit.  With road closures and lane shifts for the ongoing construction even resident locals get confused creating a traffic nightmares daily.  The pain of this expansion is not slated to be completed until late 2016 and with an El Nino (aka rainy) forcast this could likely be delayed.

So traveling through Jacksonville?  Take the time to bypass all the traffic, stop in to Southern Tank for a timely, professional wash with friendly staff, in a clean facility that offers hot food and hot showers!  Your drivers will appreciate it!

A Brief History of I-295

I-295 is a 60 mile belt loop made up of two segments, the West Beltway and the East Beltway, formerly known as 9A.  The West Beltway was built in 1970 with the East Beltway construction extending from the 1980's into the 2000's.  December 4th 2011, the two segments were officially designated as I-295.   Future projects along this interstate include the addition of I-795 (currently known as 9B) which will be an 11 mile expressway connecting US 1 to I-95.

Fun Fact: In 2009, the FL Department of Transportation designated the East Beltway as the Ronald Regan Memorial Highway, however when the Federal Highway Adminstration accepted the eastern loop as an interstate in 2010, the name was removed as the state could not name.
