Alternatives


Based on the input from the community, FDOT has refined the project to address concerns. The major features of the build alternative are:

  • Add a deceleration lane for the Stockton off-ramp. This allows all of the eastbound I-10 lanes to continue to the I-95 interchange. This will be accomplished with restriping and requires no roadway or bridge construction.

​Eastbound I-10 to Southbound I-95

  • Widen the I-10 eastbound access road exit to I-95 South from one to two lanes. This provides more time for traffic entering from Stockton Street to change lanes to go to I-95 South. This will be accomplished by widening the ramp to the inside.
  • Connect the auxiliary lanes from the I-95/I-10 interchange on the west side of the St. Johns River to the auxiliary lanes on the east side of the St. Johns River, thereby reducing a bottle neck at the river crossing. This is being accomplished by using a combination of a narrower inside shoulder (reduced from 10 feet to 4 feet) and widening the Fuller Warren Bridge (only over the water).
  • Connect the acceleration lane from the Park Street on-ramp to the Palm Avenue deceleration lane by only widening the Fuller Warren Bridge over water.
  • Northbound I-95 to Westbound I-10

  • Connect the Philips Highway I-95 Northbound on-ramp on the east side of the St. Johns River to the I-10 off-ramp on the west side of the river, thereby reducing a bottle neck at the river crossing. This is being accomplished using a combination of a narrower inside shoulder (reduced from 10 feet to 4 feet) and widening of the Fuller Warren Bridge (only over water).
  • Widen the ramp from I-95 northbound to I-10 westbound. The widening will be on the inside and will not require any right-of-way or adjustment of the outside barrier wall.

By constructing an additional fly-over within the I-95/I-10 interchange to overpass the relocated I-95 southbound traffic and retain the I-95 northbound traffic to exit onto Stockton Street​, lane changing will be reduced as the I-95 southbound traffic going to Roosevelt Boulevard will be placed on the left side of the I-95 northbound to westbound ramp and will not be required to change lanes. Similarly, the I-95 southbound traffic going to I-10 west will be placed on the right side of the I-95 northbound to westbound ramp, thereby allowing all I-10 westbound traffic to move more freely.
