The Florida Department of Transportation’s I-95/I-295 North Interchange Project will modernize and reconfigure the I-95/I-295 North interchange to improve traffic flow, safety and increase capacity.
The project will include a collector distributor system, which will allow motorists traveling along I-295, whether exiting or passing through, to maneuver through the interchange with fewer lane shifts.
Auxiliary lanes and minor ramp improvements will be added to I-95 and the Airport Road interchange. The Cole Road bridge over I-95 will also be replaced.
I-295 North and US 17 will also see construction work including bridge replacement/construction, ramp reconstruction and road work along US 17.
The interchange is part of an important corridor to promote economic growth and development in the region. Traffic volume is expected to increase significantly over the next two decades. Re-configuring the interchange will encourage growth and alleviate traffic issues in years ahead.
Temporary lane closures and nighttime detours will take place through the duration of the project; however, these will occur in off-peak times. Every effort will be made to minimize the impact to traffic flow in the construction zone.
Archer Western was contracted to complete the $176.8 million project late 2016. Work is expected to be completed in fall 2021, weather and schedule permitting.
