Stadium Exit Coming Sooner Than Later

According to this Sun-Sentinel story, highway projects have been moved up due to lowered construction prices during the recession.


In Palm Beach County, the plan includes $67 million to link Spanish River Boulevard to I-95, about midway between the Spanish River overpass and Yamato Road. Because the Spanish River ramps will be close to the existing Yamato Road interchange, ramps at Yamato will be reconfigured. The new interchange will divert FAU traffic directly to the campus instead of jamming Glades Road

Construction is scheduled to begin in 2015.

As recently as this fall, officials said there was no money for the project and one projection last year indicated it wouldn't be done until 2025.

The state needs $160 million to build the interchange plus add lanes on I-95. Although the interchange is funded, the widening of I-95 in the area will have to come later.

Boca Raton Deputy Mayor Susan Haynie said officials always have been confident the money would be available earlier, even if it was just enough to cover the interchange or a partial interchange.

"We're thrilled," she said.

Finally, this ramp should have been built long ago (like most needed road projects unfortunately!) and it will serve the schooly year round, not just for football games. Another step in FAU becoining a major institutiion!

"Construction is set to begin in December 2013 and be completed in three years.

The new interchange, about midway between the Spanish River overpass and Yamato, will carry FAU traffic directly to the campus, relieving long backups on Glades Road. Its construction became paramount once the university completed its new 30,000-seat football stadium."

For those interested in seeing what the exit would look like, there's this.

Looks like all roads lead to Rome.
