The Turnpike PD&E Study from south
of I-595 to Wiles Road was started by
Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise in the spring
of 2019 and is expected to be completed
in summer of 2021.
This schedule is subject to change.
A PD&E Study is an environmental and engineering process
conducted by FDOT to determine social, economic, physical and
environmental impacts associated with a proposed transportation
improvement project. An important component of the process
is public and agency involvement. The process follows Federal
and State laws and regulations. It requires the combined efforts
of professional engineers, planners and scientists who collect
and analyze project-related information to develop the best
solution for a community’s transportation needs while

roadway project. We are currently in the Project Development
& Environment Phase. If a build alternative is selected, then the
project moves forward into the design phase.
Project Location Map
The project begins south of I-595 (Milepost 53) and ends at Wiles Road (Milepost 70) on the Florida’s Turnpike which is approximately 17 miles in Broward County.
Project Location Map
Typical sections are detailed cross section depictions of the
roadway's principal elements that are standard between
milepost limits. Existing typical sections are shown here.
Project needs arise from deficiencies and issues that may
frequently slow down traffic, cause delays, or lead to
accidents. The need to improve this section of Florida’s
Turnpike is based on the five items listed on the image
Turnpike Peak Hour Congestion
Currently there is moderate to severe congestion in various segments of the Turnpike as well as at some of the interchanges.
As part of the study, Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise will evaluate the potential social and environmental effects of the project. Every effort will be made to avoid or minimize these impacts.
There are several on-going PD&E studies, design projects and construction projects adjacent to or near the limits of this PD&E study.
