Media Roundtable: Ramp Closures Cause Jax Traffic Nightmare
The ramp from Atlantic Boulevard and Philips Highway to Interstate 95 reopened in time for morning rush hour Friday after a day of heavy traffic across Jacksonville. The collapse of 7 inches of old slab on I-95 caused the major motorist misery as thousands of drivers had to detour through San Marco while state crews rushed to replace the sunken highway.
Joining us on our regular Friday media roundtable to discuss this and other stories are our panel of local journalists:
- Fred Matthews, Examiner blogger
- Nate Monroe, Florida Times-Union reporter
- John Burr, Jacksonville Business Journal editor
- Kyle Sieg, News4Jax producer
Additional topics include the New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's "Bridge-gate" scandal, ongoing controversy in the Marissa Alexander case, and the petition to legalize medical marijuana in Florida.
