FDOT to unveil plans for improving traffic through the I-10 and I-95 interchange area in Jacksonville. In preparation of FDOT's presentation, Metro Jacksonville highlights a situation where FDOT may be misguiding the public in building their case to widen the Fuller Warren Bridge.

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District 2 is proposing modifications to the Interstate 10 and 95 interchange area that should improve traffic flow and will unveil the latest at a public meeting scheduled for this Monday.

Unfortunately, despite being a major reason for the city being one of the country's deadliest for cyclist and pedestrians, FDOT has been telling anyone that will listen that they can't legally improve bicycle and pedestrian connectivity with this project.

Now they've gone as far as creating a website that explains why they can't legally include bike LANES as a part of the expansion project.
