  • As of early Sunday morning, FDOT says for the next 2 years, traffic will be shifted on the Fuller Warren Bridge beginning at the Park Street ramp all the way past the San Marco Boulevard exit. FDOT says drivers heading south will see lanes shift to the inside and that shift will create a work zone for construction crews to start expansion work on the Fuller Warren as part of the Your 10&95 project. We told you about this shift back in November, and due to weather and other circumstances, its been pushed back until today. FDOT says, as part of the project, construction crews will be adding another lane on I-95 in both directions on the Fuller Warren as well as a Shared Use Path. The path will be available for people walking or riding their bike from Riverside to San Marco, or vice versa. FDOT is urging drivers to use caution through this area, for your safty, as well as the construction crews safty. The Your 10&95 project is projected to be compleated by the summer of 2020.
  • Construction crews have been working on the Florida Department of Transportation’s Your10&95 project since May of 2017.  While crews have nearly a year of construction under their belt, the project still has two more years to go. FDOT says they expect the complete project to be done by the summer of 2020.  The goal of the Your10&95 project is to make operational improvements and enhancements to the interchange at I-95 and I-10, The Fuller Warren Bridge, and along east side of U.S. 17 north between McDuff Avenue and Rosselle Street. FDOT says the construction is necessary to cope with the increasing volume of traffic.  “Approximately 250,000 vehicles use the interchange every day, but that is expected to rise dramatically to approximately 290,000 daily users in 2040.” Changes to I-95 and the Fuller Warren: This project will widen the Fuller Warren Bridge expanding northbound and southbound lanes from three lanes to four. Construction crews will also add a Shared Use Path on the Fuller Warren for pedestrians and bicyclists connecting San Marco and Riverside neighborhoods. Pedestrians and bicyclists will not have to worry about their safety, FDOT says they will be separated from traffic by a 10-foot shoulder and a stand barrier wall that is three and a half feet, with an additional curved fence. FDOT says a traffic shift is expected to happen on I-95 southbound along the Fuller Warren Bridge during the month of February. It was originally slated to happen on December 4th, 2017. FDOT says the southbound to the inside of the Fuller Warren Bridge beginning at the Park Street ramp, and go back to its normal configuration after the exit ramp to San Marco Boulevard.  Changes to I-10:  Construction crews will be working to provide a dedicated ramp to Irene and Stockton Street. This is aimed at reducing the weaving traffic merging from I-95 southbound to I-10 west. FDOT says crews will be widening the overpass from I-95 north to I-10 westbound, allowing for future improvements along I-10 west. When it comes to lane closures on the interstates, FDOT says they do not plan to have lanes closed during the day between 5:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Changes to U.S. 17 North: New sound barriers will be built for the neighborhoods along the east side of U.S. 17 north from McDuff Avenue to Rosselle Street. FDOT says there will be lane closures on U.S. 17 North to make this a reality. However, lane closures will not happen between 6 a.m. – 10 a.m. and no closures southbound on U.S. 17 from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. The Florida Department of Transportation hired Archer Western as the contractor to complete this project for $126 million.  Click here to learn more about the Your10&95 project and to get a heads up on when you can expect to see lane closures and shifts for your ride.
