I-95 Interchange at Spanish River Blvd


TRAILS OPEN: As of January 2017, both the TREX and El Rio Trails are open to the general public.

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.  In addition, the El Rio Trail will have its north and south sections connected in the form of an underpass at Yamato Road and the CSX Railway, seamlessly connecting both sections, allowing bicyclists and pedestrians to avoid automobile traffic at Yamato Road completely.
