Revised Fuller Warren Bridge Plans Revealed

In December 2013, Metro Jacksonville was the first to publicly raise questions about the Florida Department of Transportation's (FDOT) plans to widen the Fuller Warren Bridge without including provisions for a pedestrian/cycling crossing between Riverside and San Marco. Well, the extra eye of scrutiny worked and Jacksonville will be a better place for it. Today, revised plans for Fuller Warren Bridge & I-95/I-10 interchange were released.

Alternative 2 Plans (FDOT's Preferred Alternative) revealed:

Alternative 2 (Preferred by FDOT) is also similar to Alternatives 1A and 1B. However, Alternative 2 eliminates the need for constructing the fly-over/under at Roosevelt Boulevard. The current excessive lane changing is due to the mixing of I-95 northbound and I-95 southbound traffic going to I-10 west and Roosevelt Boulevard. The lane changing will be substantially reduced as the I-95 southbound traffic going to Roosevelt Boulevard will be placed on the left side of the I-95 northbound to westbound ramp and will not be required to change lanes. Similarly, the I-95 southbound traffic going to I-10 west will be placed on the right side of the I-95 northbound to westbound ramp, thereby allowing all I-10 westbound traffic to move more freely.  The alternative includes constructing an additional fly-over within the I-95/I-10 interchange to overpass the relocated I-95 southbound traffic and retain the I-95 northbound traffic to exit onto Stockton Street.

Eastbound I-10 to Southbound I-95
Same as Alternative 1A.

Northbound I-95 to Westbound I-10
Same as Alternative 1A except the fly-over is replaced with the ramp modifications/additions within the I-95/I-10 interchange.
