Construction along the I-295 West Beltway at the Buckman Bridge is taking place to improve safety along the corridor. This work includes a safety initiative to communicate whether lanes are free-flowing, slowed or blocked on the bridge. Programmable overhead electronic boards and additional CCTV cameras will be installed at several locations on both directions of the bridge to guide lane use, improve traffic flow and enhance safety. Additional signage is also being placed on the bridge to better inform drivers.
The $10.5 million project was awarded to Florida Safety Contractors, Inc. and is expected to be completed in summer 2021, weather and unforeseen circumstances permitting.
