95 Express Lanes

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. Parts of this project affecting the Boca Raton area are:

  • 3B-1 SW 10th St to south of Glades Rd
  • 3B-2 Glades Rd to Linton Blvd
    • SR-808/Glades Road Interchange to a Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI)
    • Clint Moore Road bridge at I-95

3B-1 SW 10th St to south of Glades Rd

This project will extend the High Occupancy Toll lanes from south of SW 10th Street to south of Glades Road in Broward and Palm Beach counties. Scope of work includes widening and converting the existing I-95 HOV Lanes to Managed Lanes which will result in two tolled Express Lanes in each direction; the number of General Use lanes will remain the same.

Other activities include reconstruction of I-95 on the northbound and southbound approaches to the Hillsboro Canal bridges, milling and resurfacing of I-95, construction of northbound and southbound auxiliary lanes between Hillsboro Boulevard and Palmetto Park Road, and construction of a northbound auxiliary lane between the SW 10th Street entrance ramp and the Hillsboro Boulevard exit ramp.

Other project improvements include: guardrail, barrier wall, attenuators, shoulder gutters, drainage, dredging of Hillsboro Canal, bridge widenings at Palmetto Park Road and Camino Real, bridge replacement at Hillsboro Canal, temporary and permanent retaining walls, noise wall construction, sign structures, portable traffic monitoring sites, toll gantry installation, Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) installation, signing and pavement markings; Express Lane markers, lighting, ramp metering signals, utility relocation, and landscape relocation.

SR-808/Glades Road Interchange to a Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI)

On January 15, 2020, FDOT held a project Open House at the Spanish River Library which gave residents and interested parties an opportunity to learn more about the project and provide feedback to the project team.

The scope of work also includes reconfiguration of the SR-808/Glades Road Interchange to a Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI). Other project improvements include milling, resurfacing, and overbuilding the existing I-95 travel lanes and shoulders, widening the roadway, guardrail, barrier wall, attenuators, shoulder gutters, drainage, retaining walls, overhead sign structure installation, portable traffic monitoring sites, gantries and associated infrastructure (including construction of equipment buildings), installation of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) and Express Lane Markers, signing and pavement markings, new signalization, lighting, utility relocation and ramp signaling at five interchanges from Glades Road to Linton Boulevard. 

Shoulder-mounted sound barrier walls will be constructed along I-95 northbound between Clint Moore Road and Linton Boulevard, ground-mounted sound walls will be installed on Yamato Road adjacent to the University Heights Community and along I-95 northbound south of Linton Boulevard adjacent to the Tierra Verde Community.
