Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is scheduled to begin resurfacing improvements on I-295 (SR 9A) from Trout River to east of Biscayne Boulevard overpasses this May. The construction work planned includes:
- Milling and paving of the roadway and ramps within the project limits
- Roadway striping
- Guardrail installation
- Drainage improvements
- Other miscellaneous guardrail improvements
To improve safety, a high friction asphalt mixture will be used to pave a portion of the roadway of the southbound Dunn Avenue entrance ramp loop. This special mixture of asphalt, will allow tires to grip the roadway better for motorists while merging on to the interstate.
To complete paving operations, lane closures will be allowed on I-295 Sunday through Thursday from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. No closures are permitted from 5 a.m. Friday to 9 p.m. Sunday.
Lane closure times on Dunn Avenue (S.R. 104), Lem Turner Road (S.R. 115) and Duval Road (S.R. 243) will vary. Detours will also be implemented to complete resurfacing and guardrail installation at the on and off ramps of I-295 within the project limits.
Duval asphalt Products Inc., was selected to complete the improvements
