Florida’s Turnpike is modifying and improving the interchange with Sunrise Boulevard, and implementing All-Electronic Tolling at the interchange. Currently, drivers can face extended backups at this interchange because northbound and southbound entry and exit traffic is channeled through a single toll plaza. By constructing two new ramps with direct access to eastbound Sunrise Boulevard, there will be a significant reduction in vehicles that need to make left turns at the existing ramp. Providing one ramp and toll gantry at each of the four quadrants in the interchange will allow for improved traffic signal timing and traffic flow.
It is estimated the project will cost $50 million and construction is expected to be completed summer 2020.
