Broward at 95 PD&E Study click here for information
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is implementing Phase 3 of the 95 Express Lanes continuing 29 miles north from Stirling Rd. in Broward County to Linton Blvd. in Palm Beach County. The purpose of the 95 Express Lanes is to improve mobility, relieve congestion, provide additional travel options, enhance transit services, accommodate future growth and development in the region, enhance emergency evacuation, and improve system connectivity between key limited access facilities in South Florida. 95 Express is part of a regional network of express lanes that will provide a safe, efficient, and reliable transportation alternative to drivers traveling throughout South Florida.
The Phase 3 project limits were evaluated as three individual Project Development and Environment (PD&E) studies. The studies were conducted from Stirling Rd. to Oakland Park Blvd. in Broward County; from Oakland Park Blvd. in Broward County to Glades Rd. in Palm Beach County; and from Glades Rd. to Linton Blvd. in Palm Beach County. In order to expedite the construction of the 95 express lanes in Southeast Florida, FDOT combined the results of all three studies into Phase 3.The improvements in Phase 3 will be implemented in segments due to funding limitations. The first segment (3A-1 from south of Broward Blvd. to north of Commercial Blvd., and 3A-2 north of Commercial Blvd. to SW 10th St. in Broward County) is under construction. The second segment (3B-1 from south of SW 10th St. to south of Glades Rd.) began construction in early 2018. The third segment (3B-2 south of Glades Rd. to Linton Blvd.) is scheduled for construction in 2020. A key component of Phase 3 is a potential direct connection between northbound and southbound 95 Express and I-595, to and from the west. This direct connect will be included in the Phase 3C limits of 95 Express Phase 3. Segment 3C is the fourth segment with limits from Stirling Road to south of Broward Blvd on I-95 and along I-595 from SR 7/US 441/Turnpike Interchange to I-95. Phase 3C will begin construction in 2019. Additionally, a continuation of Ramp Signaling will be included as part of this project up to Linton Blvd. in Palm Beach County.
