442932-1 SR 44 at I-95 Update – FINAL Appointed letter

S.R. 44 at I-95 Interchange Improvements Design
Volusia County
Financial Project Identification (FPID) No.: 442932-1

Dear Government Partner:

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) would like to provide a project update on proposed improvements on State Road (S.R.) 44 at the Interstate 95 (I-95) interchange from the southbound off ramp to Florida Memorial Parkway. The purpose of the project is to improve safety and operations within the interchange by adding and extending auxiliary lanes to provide additional space for vehicles to merge when entering or exiting the interstate.

The proposed design improvements include adding an eastbound auxiliary lane through the interchange, a westbound deceleration lane for the I-95 northbound on ramp, and the addition of a second left turn lane from the I-95 exit ramp to westbound S.R. 44. Auxiliary lanes are added next to the through lanes to maintain traffic flow.
In lieu of a public information meeting, the FDOT has placed project information online at www.cflroads.com/442932-1. We invite you and your constituents to view a short video about the project and submit comments by clicking on the “Ask a Question” button.
