SR-9 / I-95 at 10th Avenue North Interchange PD&E Study
About the Study
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District Four, has initiated a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study that will consider transportation improvement options at the SR-9/I-95 at 10th Avenue North interchange in Palm Beach County, Florida.
This project was screened through the FDOT’s Efficient Transportation Decision Making (ETDM) process as Project #14337 in 2018. The Programming Summary Report documents comments received from several public and permitting agencies.
The project extends along 10th Avenue North from east of Detroit Street to North A Street, a distance of approximately 0.5 miles. 10th Avenue North is located between Forest Hill Boulevard (1.90 miles to the north) and 6th Avenue South (1.28 miles to the south) interchanges along I-95. This portion of 10th Avenue North travels through the City of Lake Worth Beach. The predominant land uses in the project corridor are commercial and industrial, retail/office, and residential.
The purpose of the study is to improve the local and regional transportation network while simultaneously providing enhanced multimodal interrelationships.
- Improve the local and regional transportation network
- Provide multimodal accommodations
- Improve roadway capacity and safety
- Enhance emergency evacuation and response times
