Project: I-95 Express Lanes and Ramp Signals – Phase 3A-1
Client: FDOT District 4
Cost: $148.7 Million
Location: Broward County, Florida
Description: The first of several separate I-95 Express Lanes Design-Build projects that will ultimately extend 95 Express from Stirling Road in Broward County to Linton Boulevard in Palm Beach County. The limits are from south of Broward Blvd. to the north of Commercial Boulevard. The project includes converting existing High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes to High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes, as well as one lane widening each direction, resulting in two tolled Express Lanes in each direction. The number of existing General Use and Auxiliary Lanes will remain the same. Access to the Express Lanes will be limited to designated Entry and Exit Point locations. The Express Lanes will implement congestion-based toll pricing.
The facility will employ Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) via the Florida Turnpike Enterprises (FTE) SunPass system. Other improvements include: milling, resurfacing, and overbuilding; guardrail; barrier wall; attenuators; shoulder gutters; drainage; bridge widenings; retaining walls; sound barrier walls; sign structures; portable traffic monitoring sites; tolling gantries and associated infrastructure including equipment buildings; Intelligent Transportation System (ITS); signing and pavement markings; express lane delineators; signalization; lighting; ramp (metering) signals; utility relocation; landscaping.
