The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is seeking infrastructure solutions for capacity and safety improvement along I-95, the interchanges at Commercial Boulevard and Cypress Creek Road and the adjacent intersections to both interchanges. The project area of influence along I-95 extends from just south of Prospect Road to just north of McNab Road for approximately 2 miles. The project includes an evaluation of the existing roadway and roadside to identify deficiencies or items needing improvement to current FDOT standards.
The project is located within the limits of the Cities of Fort Lauderdale, Oakland Park and Pompano Beach. The South Florida Rail Corridor (SFRC)/CSX Railroad is adjacent to and runs parallel along the west side of I-95 within the project area.

The primary purpose of this project is to improve operational capacity and overall traffic operations by providing improvements at the existing interchanges of SR 9/I-95 at Commercial Boulevard and Cypress Creek Road and the adjacent intersections to both interchanges. The project is also intended to improve safety within the vicinity, including access to I-95 and the arterial intersections.
Secondary considerations for the purpose and need of this project include the following:
- Improve system linkage
- Accommodate modal interrelationships
- Accommodate transportation demand
- Accommodate social demands and economic development
- Enhance emergency evacuation and response times
FDOT started a public involvement program in January 2016 as a part of this PD&E Study. The program will continue throughout the project. This process is designed to ensure public input in the development of alternatives by actively encouraging and facilitating the participation of the general public, citizen groups, interest groups, elected and appointed officials, environmental resource agencies, and other stakeholders. Opportunities to comment include communicating with project staff and attending public meetings. Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability or family status.
