Florida DOT expanding I-95 ITS project into northern Palm Beach County

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is expanding its ‘smart’ highway system on Interstate 95 into northern Palm Beach County. This is the second phase of FDOT’s I-95 ITS Deployment Project, which is a Design/Build scheme that will establish a permanent ITS network along I-95 through Palm Beach County. The project includes the installation of: Variable Message Signs (VMS) on I-95 and on crossroads with entrance and exit ramps toand from I-95; Highway Advisory Radio; vehicle detection systems; traffic monitoring cameras; and other ITS-related equipment. The first stage of the project has recently been completed between the Broward-Palm Beach County line and PGA Boulevard. The second phase will extend the system from PGA Boulevard to the Palm Beach-Martin County Line.

The second phase of the project could not start until construction was completed on FDOT’s I-95 HOV Expansion Project from south of PGA Boulevard north to Donald Ross Road. This involved the expansion of the existing six-lane interstate to 10 lanes, which includes one general-purpose lane and one High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane in each direction and additional auxiliary lanes. The project includes the installation of a large overhead VMS south of Donald Ross Road, 11 vehicle detection systems and seven traffic cameras, which will broadcast images to the shared county/state traffic-management center, where operators monitor traffic conditions. The main contractor is Transcore ITS and the second phase of the 61km (38-mile) US$24.5 million project is expected to be complete by May 2013.
