Lane Closures, Detours for I-95 Construction in Florida

The Florida Department of Transportation reports the following traffic impacts as a result of I-95 construction in the Daytona Beach area:

Lane Closures

Sunday, March 25th, 2018 to Saturday, March 31st, 2018

  • U.S. 92 Closures Sunday – Thursday, 10 p.m. – 6 a.m. Sunday, U.S. 92 eastbound will be closed at I-95. Monday – Thursday all lanes of U.S. 92 will be closed at I-95. Traffic will be detoured using Tomoka Farms Road, Bellevue Avenue and Williamson Boulevard. Please note traffic will not be able to use the I-95 southbound on ramp from U.S. 92. Traffic will be detoured south on Williamson Boulevard to Beville Road.
  • Sunday – Saturday, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. – 6 a.m., I-95 northbound & southbound lane closures from U.S. 92 to south of I-4.
  • Wednesday, 10 p.m. – 6 a.m., inside lane closure on the ramp from I-4 eastbound to I-95 northbound for pouring an approach slab.

This project involves widening Interstate 95 (I-95) from four lanes to six lanes from north of State Road (S.R.) 44 to north of U.S. 92 (International Speedway Boulevard). The southern project limit will tie into the recently completed I-95 widening project to the south (from south of S.R. 406 to north of S.R. 44). The project scope also includes the reconstruction of the systems interchange with I-4, I-95 and U.S. 92.

Work to be done includes pavement widening, drainage systems improvements, bridge widening, bridge replacement, retaining walls, highway lighting, Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) modifications, median barriers, signing and pavement markings, signalization, milling, and resurfacing.

This project reconstructs the I-95 interchange leading to and from I-4 and U.S. 92, which will increase mobility and connectivity. It will also increase safety for merging, exiting and through-traffic. The project will eliminate a left-side merge ramp onto I-95 from U.S. 92, just a short distance to the south. Additional lanes will be constructed along I-95 allowing vehicles traveling through the area to continue in dedicated lanes, and vehicles entering and exiting I-95 to be separated into dedicated entrance and exit lanes.

10 Most Popular Snowbird Destinations for I-95 Travelers

It’s that time of year again. Temperatures are getting colder and thoughts are turning to warmer climates. This is the time of year when millions of snowbirds start planning their annual RV pilgrimage south to winter destinations.

Now that Hurricane Irma is in the rear view mirror, many southern locations that were hard hit by the storm are coming back to life and welcoming visitors with open arms. Businesses are open and gas availability is not a problem.

For those in the northeast and eastern Canada, I-95 is the path that takes them there.  Most of them are headed for Florida, Georgia and the Gulf Coast.

Snowbirds don’t necessarily fit into a specific age group or category. They can be retirees, business owners, or others fortunate enough to take a good portion of the winter off. Many snowbirds are RVers who take their homes with them.

Here’s our list of the Top 10 Snowbird Destinations for I-95 Travelers…
