PBP: $67 million project gives FAU direct access to I-95
When the $66.7 million project is finished in late 2016, it will give Boca Raton its fifth I-95 interchange and provide Florida Atlantic University direct access to and from the highway. It also will be the first new I-95 interchange in Palm Beach County since 2004, when a direct-access interchange to Palm Beach International Airport was completed.
Besides the creation of the Spanish River interchange, the project will entail building a new bridge over I-95 at Spanish River, the building of new highway ramps at Yamato Road and the addition of two ramps that will allow motorists to drive directly between Spanish River and Yamato without getting on the highway.
It also will add a new lane on I-95 in both directions from the Congress Avenue interchange to Yamato and from Spanish River to Glades Road. The new noise walls will be built north of Yamato just east of I-95 and between the San de Vance community and I-95 north of Yamato."
Spanish River Blvd Project
1.) Guessing Friday and Saturday nights there is no working as part of the agreement.
2.) Since I don't drive down that way every day, I do not know if they work on it every day, but here is the question if they do, is it a 24 hour operation. I know they do the expansion lanes at night but again I haven't driven that way during the week in like forever.
This project is a great thing for FAU and the City but I'm really curious to see how it shapes up and how FAU reinvents the north (back) entrance to accommodate drivers who will now be entering the research park first and going, "Where is the university?" It might get confusing, especially with PBSC right there. The upside is that it directs a ton of traffic past the new stadium
