The I-595 Express Corridor Improvements Project consists of the reconstruction of the I-595 roadway and all associated improvements to adjacent cross-roads, frontage roads and ramps from the I-75/Sawgrass Expressway interchange to the I-595/I-95 interchange on I-595 and from Peters Road to Griffin Road on Florida's Turnpike, for a total project length of 13 miles.
I 595 Express, LLC plans to use a construction sequencing approach to complete the improvements throughout the I-595 corridor. The primary goal of this approach is to maximize the movement of people, goods, and services during construction while minimizing any inconvenience to residents, commuters, and businesses; ensuring the safety of workers; performing quality work; and, completing work in the most efficient manner.
The work will be completed within self-contained work zones, for ease of construction, traffic management, emergency access, and to reduce overall public impact; the project has been split into five (5) construction segments with phases of work within each segment. In order to complete various construction activities throughout the corridor while minimizing public impacts, several construction teams will be assigned to complete tasks at the same time along the corridor.
Each of the five segments is broken down further into phases, where each segment, on average, consists of three construction phases. Each phase of construction represents a traffic shift to accommodate construction activities and public safety.
