The proposed improvements mainly consist of widening the Florida’s Turnpike from north of Glades Road (MP 76.8) to north of the L-38 Canal (MP 80.2) from the existing 6-lane divided expressway to a 10-lane divided typical section with 4-general travel lanes and 1 thru lane in each direction. Thru lanes will be separated from general purpose toll by a buffer delineated with two 6-inch solid lines.
The project also includes replacement of the Yamato Road bridges, widening the bridge over Clint Moore Road, replacement of the bridge over L-38 Canal, widening the bridge over Atlantic Avenue milling and resurfacing, noise barriers, roadway lighting, and signing and pavement markings.
