Home / FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions


What is the purpose of this project?
The purpose of the project is to enhance overall traffic operations at the existing interchange of SR-9/I-95 and Northlake Boulevard (Exit 77) by providing improvements to achieve acceptable Levels of Service (LOS) at the interchange in the future condition (2040 Design Year).  Conditions along Northlake Boulevard are anticipated to deteriorate below acceptable LOS standards if no improvements occur by 2040. Without improvements, the interchange will not have sufficient capacity to accommodate the projected travel demand.

What are the limits for this project?
The area is located in northeastern Palm Beach County within the City of Palm Beach Gardens at SR-9 / I-95 at Northlake Boulevard. Work on I-95 will occur from mile post (MP) 34.52 to MP 35.156. Work on Northlake Boulevard from Military Trail to Sandtree Drive/Sunrise Drive in the City of Palm Beach Gardens.

What are the planned improvements?
This design-bid-build project consists of widening, milling and resurfacing of SR 9 / I- 95 and the Northlake Boulevard Interchange, and the widening of Northlake Boulevard (CR 809A) with the addition of a fourth eastbound through-lane just west of Keating Drive / Gardens Town Square to Sunrise Drive; a fourth westbound lane from just east of Sandtree Drive to Military Trail; providing triple right- and triple left-turn lanes at I-95 northbound and southbound ramp exits; and adding a dedicated westbound right-turn lane to northbound Military Road. Work on I-95 will occur from just south of the Northlake Boulevard interchange to just north of the Earman Canal and work on Northlake Boulevard will occur from Military Trail in the City of Palm Beach Gardens to east of Silverthorne Drive in Palm Beach County. The project includes new sidewalks and bicycle lanes on Northlake Boulevard. This interchange project proposes to enhance operational capacity, reduce congestion and increase safety.

What is a design-bid-build project?
Design-bid-build (DB) combines into a single contract the design and construction, for a project, all in accordance with standard Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) criteria, specifications and contract administration practices. These projects allow the contractor to participate in the design in an effort to reduce costs and expedite construction
