The I-95 Interchange at Spanish River Blvd project will provide direct access to Spanish River Blvd from I-95 as well as Yamato Road, with 13 bridges being constructed as part of the interchange.  In addition to the interchange, other improvements will be made, such as widening Spanish River Boulevard west of FAU Boulevard, signalized intersection improvements, the addition of auxiliary lanes on Yamato Road, and sound wall construction along Yamato Road and on the east side of I-95 north of Yamato Road.

As part of the I-95 Interchange at Spanish River Blvd project, the El Rio Trail will have its north and south sections connected into one continuous trail.  Currently, El Rio Trail is interrupted at Yamato Road; trail users approaching Yamato Road must walk or bike over a quarter of a mile west along Yamato to Congress Avenue, where they can safely cross, and then walk over a quarter of a mile east to continue back on the trail.  Once the I-95 Interchange at Spanish River Blvd project is complete, trail users will be able to take an underpass below Yamato Road and the FEC tracks, seamlessly connecting both the north and south sections of the trail and avoiding automobile traffic completely.
