This construction is part of Phase III of the overall improvements to State Road 200 and consists of reconstruction and widening of 2.2 miles of A1A from west of I-95 to west of Still Quarters Road, widening of ramps at the interchange, and contruction of the diverging diamond.
A diverging diamond is a type of interchange where the two directions of traffic briefly drive on the opposite side of the road, eliminating long waits for left turns to and from the Interstate, thus reducing congestion and improving overall traffic operations. Diverging diamond interchanges also improve safety because they eliminate driver confusion and reduce the risk of wrong way entry onto ramps. Below are links to two videos regarding diverging diamonds. The first is an educational video regarding the benefits of diverging diamonds. The second video is an example of how the diverging diamond will work at the I-95/State Road 200 Interchange.
FDOT will be hosting an Open House on Thursday, February 23, 2017 from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. at FSCJ in the Nassau Room to meet with citizens and answer any questions they may have. Engineers for all 3 phases of the State Road 200 Widening Project will be in attendance as well.
