Safety improvements

The purpose and need of this project is to improve traffic flow through the I-95/Temple Avenue Interchange, to eliminate prolonged periods of delay and to decrease the accident rate within the project limits. The project will address current deficiencies in capacity, geometry and safety.

Proposed Improvements

The project will realign the southbound and northbound I-95 off ramps to eliminate the existing yield condition. The signalized intersection at the interchange will be removed and replaced with a roundabout.  

The proposed roundabout includes two lanes of circulation and a continuous bypass lane on the west bound approach. Both the northbound and southbound I-95 off-ramps are extended and improved to provide motorists greater distance and improved curvature for transition from the high speed mainline to the arterial. The northbound I-95 off-ramp is improved to provide for a free-flow movement and eliminate the existing yield controlled condition.

This project will be advertised as design-build.
