The study limits extend along Florida’s Turnpike from south of I-595 at milepost 53 to Wiles Road at milepost 70. The project is located within Broward County. There are six existing interchanges within the study limits.

A PD&E Study determines if there is an engineering and environmentally feasible alternative to meet the future needs determined in the planning phase. It involves the preparation of preliminary engineering and environmental documentation.

Improvements to Florida’s Turnpike are needed to enhance safety. Between 2012 and 2016, there were almost 3,000 crashes within the study limits equating to an economic cost of 339 million dollars. If nothing is done, increased congestion will lead to an increase in crashes.

Improvements to Florida’s Turnpike are needed to accommodate year 2045 travel demands. Travel demands on the transportation network will increase as the population grows.

An evaluation matrix compares the potential costs and impacts of widening to the west, widening on a center alignment and widening to the east from south of Atlantic Boulevard to Wiles Road. The comparison of costs and impacts show that widening to the west, within existing State right of way, will have the least impacts and lowest cost. The corridor maps show widening to the west, within existing State right of way, from south of Atlantic Boulevard to Wiles Rd. The proposed typical section for the southern limits, from I-595 to south of Atlantic Boulevard, is a center widening and is shown on the corridor maps.

The Study Team is also coordinating with other Turnpike projects to the north and south of the study limits.

After the Alternatives Public Information Meeting is held, we will review public comments in conjunction with the social, cultural, environmental, and engineering factors to reach a recommendation on a Preferred Alternative. The Preferred Alternative will then be presented to the public for input in the summer of 2022, with the project ending in the end of 2022. Please note that the schedule is subject to change.
