Highway and Bridge
Interstate 95 (I-95) runs nearly 2,000 miles along the East Coast of the United States with 382 of those miles passing through Florida. To improve safety and mobility along the southernmost portion of I-95, the Florida Department of Transportation initiated a project that involved widening I-95 from four lanes to six from north of State Road (SR) 44 to the north of the U.S. Highway 92 (US 92) or International Speedway Boulevard.
The multifaceted project resulted in widening 15 miles of I-95, complete reconstruction of Interstate 4 (I-4)/SR 400 and US 92 interchanges, reconstruction of the Bellevue Bridge, and improvements to SR 400, US 92, Bellevue Road, and Tomoka Farms Road. The project added a lane in the north and southbound directions, and improved safety and mobility within these major interchanges by incorporating collector-distributor roads that separate the merging and exiting traffic from the through lanes of I-95.
There are 18 bridges along the stretch of highway. During construction, crews widened the bridges and made improvements to median drainage systems. Another important aspect of this project was incorporating aesthetic features due to its location being the gateway to NASCAR's Daytona International Speedway, Daytona Beach International Airport, and the City of Daytona Beach. The project incorporated bridge lighting systems and a lighted aesthetic structure that welcomes travelers to Daytona Beach.
The project involved the construction of new asphalt pavement and milling and resurfacing of the existing pavement, and the construction of acceleration and deceleration lanes. Allowing flexibility to work during winter months, warm mix asphalt was used to mill and resurface existing pavement. Completed in 2020, the project has improved traffic flow and enhanced safety along I-95.
