The I-595 Express Corridor Improvements Project has been divided into five construction segments, A through E, to help expedite the work. The Corridor Map below shows the location of the segments. Each of the construction segments has up to seven major phases of work, generally starting from S.R. 84 north and south of I-595 and working toward the I-595 median. Each major phase of construction within a segment represents a traffic shift to accommodate construction activities.
Roadway construction began in Segment C in February 2010 in the vicinity of Pine Island Road. Roadway work continues on I-595 and SR 84 including the construction of barrier walls, installing drainage and Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) conduit, and work on several bridges. Landscaping is being installed in the segment.
Construction in Segment D started in June 2010. Roadway work and widening activities continue along both eastbound and westbound I-595. Construction of bridge abutments and walls for new bridges and ramps continue near Florida’s Turnpike and SR 7/US 441 interchange. This includes the building of the direct connection ramps from the Express Lanes to Florida’s Turnpike.
Segments A and B officially got underway in November 2010. Work on several bridges continues including constructing bridge abutments and walls for the new ramps. The contractor continues to install drainage structures, the ITS conduit. Both eastbound and westbound traffic in the Flamingo Road/136 Avenue area will be moved mid-March into the newly widened auxiliary lanes to allow the continued construction of the Express Lanes in the median with the placement of asphalt and the direct connection ramps to/from the Sawgrass Expressway.
The final segment of the project, Segment E on Florida’s Turnpike, started in March 2011 with the construction of ground mounted sound barriers along Florida’s Turnpike both north and south of I-595. Widening of both northbound and southbound Florida’s Turnpike is underway as well as work on bridge structures and ramps in the interchange.
