I-95 Interchange at Boynton Beach Boulevard Design Project
What is the purpose of this project?
The purpose of the project is to enhance overall traffic operations at the existing interchange of SR-9/I-95 and SR-804/Boynton Beach Boulevard by providing improvements to achieve acceptable Levels of Service (LOS) at the interchange in the future condition (2040 Design Year). Conditions along Boynton Beach Boulevard are anticipated to deteriorate below acceptable LOS standards if no improvements occur by 2040; the interchange will have insufficient capacity to accommodate the projected travel demand.
What are the limits for this project?
The area is located in eastern Palm Beach County within the City of Boynton Beach at SR-804 / Boynton Beach Boulevard at SR-9 / I-95 (Exit 57). On I-95, the work will include from the northbound off ramp / southbound on ramp connections with I-95 to the southbound off ramp / northbound on-ramp I-95 connection and on Boynton Beach Boulevard from Old Boynton Road / SW 8th Street to just east of NW 3rd Street.
What are the planned improvements?
This design-bid-build project consists of widening, milling and resurfacing the existing SR-9 / I-95 at Boynton Beach Boulevard interchange. Work on I-95 will include widening the Boynton Beach Boulevard bridge and each of the ramps; and work on SR-804 / Boynton Beach Boulevard will occur from Old Boynton Road / SW 8th Street to just east of NW 3rd Street. Also, the project includes new sidewalks and buffered bicycle lanes. This interchange project proposes to enhance operational capacity, reduce congestion, and increase safety.
What is a design-bid-build project?
Design-bid-build (DBB) projects are where the Florida Department of Transportation contracts with an engineering firm for design documents that upon completion are ready to be put out for bid and construction.
