Express Lanes are now being setup along busier interstate routes in Florida. Vehicles with them be forced to pay a toll, but electronic systems mean it normally won’t need to visit booths to pay for. The segment of I-95 between Butler and Atlantic boulevards encounters hurry hour congestion because of demand that exceeds roadway capacity. The Transportation Department study will evaluate adding express lanes there to alleviate congestion.
An open workshop is going to be from four to six:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Jacksonville Marriott at 4670 Salisbury Route to showcase an improvement and Atmosphere Study suggested Interstate 95 Express Lanes from Butler to Atlantic boulevards, based on the Florida Dot.
The workshop is going to be a wide open-house format with staff open to discuss the planned roadway project with no formal presentation planned.
