I-95 Capacity Expansion Expected To Cost $2.3B, But No Double Decking Yet

FDOT’s plan to expand I-95 is expected to eventually cost $2.3 billion, according to a presentation.

Double decking of the highway does not appear to be contemplated, at least for now.

As part of the project, an additional express lane could be added through much of the corridor, making it three lanes in each direction.

An express lane connection to and from the I-195 Miami Beach exit could finally be added – as was originally promised to residents when the lanes were first built. New express lane connections could also be added to SR 826.

The Project Development and Environment Study is expected in 2021 and 2022, while the Design/Right-of- Way Acquisition is forecast for 2024. There is no date yet for the construction phase.
