Update on the status of the I-95 widening project that will impact the Port Orange Area

#addtoany-share#

DUnlawton Bridge Port OrangeThis project involves widening Interstate 95 (I-95) from four-lanes to six lanes from north of State Road (SR) 44 to north of US 92 (International Speedway Boulevard). The southern project limit will tie in to the ongoing I-95 widening project to the south (from south of SR 406 to north of SR 44). This Design Build project also reconstructs the I-95 Interchange leading to and from Interstate 4 (I-4) and US 92 which will increase mobility and connectivity. It will increase the safety for merging, exiting and through-traffic. The project will also eliminate a left side merge ramp onto I-95 from US 92, just a short distance to the south. Project updates can be found at www.cflroads.com.
