435209-1 I-75 at NW 49th Street Interchange
|ROW Cost:||$20 Million|
|Construction Cost:||$59.3 Million|
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is constructing a new Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) in the area of I-75 and NW 49th Street in Ocala. This interchange will improve interstate and regional mobility within Marion County, accommodate future traffic growth and provide relief to existing surrounding interchanges. These findings are a result of a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study for this location that was completed in March 2021.
The project proposes to construct a Diverging Diamond Interchange. This innovative design helps to enhance safety and improve efficiency at the interchange by removing the need for traffic to make left turns in front of oncoming traffic.
A Public Meeting for this project was held on August 25, 2022. Please see the public meeting information in the files below.
