From SR 826/Palmetto Expressway Eastbound to I-95 Northbound
The Golden Glades Interchange (GGI) Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study will evaluate options for a direct connection from SR 826/Palmetto Expressway eastbound to I-95 northbound and to improve the Turnpike southbound to I-95 southbound connection in order to increase mobility and reduce travel delay.
The project will also identify interim improvements for the GGI and evaluate connecting a potential managed lanes system for SR 826/Palmetto Expressway to the existing 95 Express managed lanes system. These improvements are in support of a separate and adjacent SR 826 PD&E Study, from I-75 to Golden Glades Interchange, currently under study and an Ultimate Master Plan to be established for this interchange.
The study will also evaluate connecting a potential managed lanes system for SR 826/Palmetto Expressway to the existing 95 Express managed lanes system.
The managed lanes along SR 826 (Palmetto Expressway) are currently being evaluated under a separate and adjacent PD&E Study (FPID: 418423-1-22-01, ETDM# 11241). The Ultimate Master Plan concepts developed will be utilized to support the managed lanes concepts being developed under the SR 826 (Palmetto Expressway) mainline PD&E Study.
The study will investigate the technical and economic feasibility of alternatives to reconstruct and upgrade the roadway within the existing right of way, to the maximum extent practicable, and will evaluate the impact of the project upon the surrounding environment.
