There is traffic in the Mandarin area. Just consider where you will be going, work or school, and then look at the location of the home as far as distance to a major road or I-295 to get there. Again, our trafic is light compared to elsewhere in the usa. Our complaints are about what would be a good saturday or sunday drive in Chicago.
Mandarin offers multiple routes to residents. Highways I-295, I-95, Phillips Highway and San Jose Boulevard are main thoroughfares and close by. The city has made steps to avoid growing out of our current infrastructure as Jacksonville continues to grow.
