The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Five has commenced a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study for a new Interstate 95 (I-95) interchange at Pioneer Trail in Volusia County. The purpose of the proposed interchange at I-95 and Pioneer Trail is to relieve traffic congestion on the two adjacent interchanges north and south of the project: I-95 at State Road 421 (Dunlawton Avenue) and I-95 at State Road 44 (Lytle Avenue).
The project also aims to support economic development associated with existing and approved developments, including three Developments of Regional Impact (Farmton, Restoration and Pavilion at Port Orange).
The objective of the study is to evaluate roadway and interchange alternatives associated with a new interchange at I-95 and Pioneer Trail. The study will analyze and assess the proposed project's impact on the social, economic, cultural, natural, and physical environment, in order to develop the location and design concept of the project in accordance with FDOT policy, procedures and requirements.
