I-95 at Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway (U.S. 1) Interchange Improvements
Overview

This FDOT project includes planned interchange improvements at Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway (U.S. 1) and I-95 (S.R. 9) and the proposed ramp closure of the Flanders Street connection to the Boulevard Street on-ramp to westbound Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway to improve safety conditions.

The primary purpose of this project is to improve existing and future traffic conditions:

  • Improve safety
  • Reduce conflicts
  • Reduce congestion
  • Increase operational efficiency

FDOT proposes the following modifications:

  • Closing the northwest loop ramp

Installing new traffic signals:

  • For westbound Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway to southbound I-95
  • For eastbound Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway to northbound I-95
  • Reconstructing and widening the I-95 bridge at Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway to vertical clearance of 16.5’
  • Reconstructing pedestrian bridge over Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway to vertical clearance of 17.5’
  • Installing noise barrier wall to reduce roadway noise at the southeast, northeast, southwest and northwest quadrants of the interchange
  • Closing the Flanders Street connection to the Boulevard Street (W. 21st Street) on-ramp to westbound Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway to improve safety conditions
