Frequently Asked Questions

What are the study limits for this project?
The study area is located in eastern Palm Beach County within the City of Boynton Beach between Gateway Boulevard at SR-9/I-95 and Boynton Beach Boulevard at SR-9/I-95. The project area for the traffic data analysis extends from south of the Woolbright Road Interchange to north of the Hypoluxo Road Interchange. At Gateway Boulevard, the study area extends from west of High Ridge Road to east of Seacrest Boulevard. At Boynton Beach Boulevard, the study area extends from west of Industrial Avenue to east of Seacrest Boulevard.

What is a PD&E Study?
A Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study is an environmental and engineering process that was developed by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), in response to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969.  The PD&E study process ensures that transportation projects are developed with consideration of current engineering standards, project costs, and minimization of social and environmental impacts, while involving the public throughout the entire study process.

What is the objective of the study?
The purpose of the project is to enhance overall traffic operations at the existing interchanges of SR-9/I-95 at Gateway Boulevard and SR-9/I-95 at SR-804/Boynton Beach Boulevard by providing improvements to achieve acceptable LOS at both interchanges in Design Year 2045. Conditions along Gateway Boulevard and Boynton Beach Boulevard are anticipated to deteriorate below acceptable LOS standards if no improvements are made by 2045. The interchanges will have insufficient capacity to accommodate the projected travel demand.

The project need is to improve the operational capacity and overall traffic operation LOS at the interchanges and study area roadways/intersections by implementing operational and capacity improvements, to meet the future travel demand projected as a result of Palm Beach County population and employment growth.
