Adding the travel lane at this location will help eliminate the merging actions from drivers coming off the S.R. 404 westbound ramp to U.S. 1, and help reduce potential crash points. Improvements also include widening and constructing dual right turn lanes at the S.R. 404 eastbound off ramp to U.S. 1.
The purpose of the project is to improve operations by signalizing the intersection of U.S. 1 (State Road (S.R.) 5) and the S.R. 404 eastbound ramps, as well as widening to construct a 12-foot-wide travel lane from the S.R. 404 eastbound off ramp to the S.R. 404 overpass.
