The Florida Department of Transportation reports that I-95/I-10 interchange operational improvements project will be preparing for a traffic shift along Interstate 95 southbound on the Fuller Warren Bridge January 4-6, depending on weather and unforeseen circumstances. The traffic shift will create a work zone allowing crews to begin expansion work and will remain in place for approximately two years, subject to change.
During the traffic shift, southbound lanes will shift to the inside of the Fuller Warren Bridge beginning at the Park Street ramp, and return to the former configuration after the exit ramp to
San Marco Boulevard.
The following overnight ramp closures and detours will be in effect January 4-6 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. to allow crews to prepare for the traffic shift, depending on weather (see map for details):
- The Interstate 95 southbound on ramp from Stockton Street on Interstate 10 eastbound will be closed. Motorists will be detoured on Interstate 10 eastbound to the Forest Street exit where they will turn right onto Forest Street. They will then need to turn left onto Riverside Avenue and merge right onto the Acosta Bridge on ramp which will connect with Interstate 95 southbound.
- The Park Street on ramp to Interstate 95 southbound to the Fuller Warren Bridge will also be closed. Motorists will take Park Street to Forest Street and turn right onto Forest Street. They will then need to turn left onto Riverside Avenue and merge right onto the Acosta Bridge on ramp which will connect with Interstate 95 southbound.
The Fuller Warren Bridge will be adding an additional lane in each direction along with a new Shared Use Path (SUP) which will be constructed on the southbound side of the bridge parallel
to traffic lanes for pedestrians and bicyclists. The new SUP will connect Riverside and San Marco communities.
This improvement project began in May with completion anticipated in summer of 2020, depending on weather and unforeseen delays.
