Intersection and safety work will be starting soon on Baymeadows Road per The Florida Department of Transportation. The project includes the installation of turn lanes at five intersections along Baymeadows Road from Prominence Parkway to Southside Boulevard. The addition of right and left turn lanes and the closure of a median located 400-feet west of Southside Boulevard, will help to improve traffic flow and increase capacity along the roadway.
A left turn lane will be added on westbound Baymeadows Road turning south onto Prominence Parkway; a left turn lane will be installed on northbound Western Way turning west onto Baymeadows Road; right and left turn lanes will be added at the intersection of Old Baymeadows Road and Baymeadows Road and a left turn lane will be added on westbound Baymeadows Road turning south onto Southside Boulevard. In addition, the I-95 southbound ramp to Baymeadows Road will be realigned.
Pedestrian safety improvements include the construction of a new sidewalk on the south side of Baymeadows Road from Western Way to Southside Boulevard and the addition of countdown pedestrian timers at crosswalks.
Construction will occur weekdays and weekends. No lane closures are allowed from 6 am to 10 pm Monday through Friday on Southside Boulevard, Western Way and the I-95 southbound ramp, and no lane closures are allowed from 7 am to 11 pm Monday through Friday on Baymeadows Road and Old Baymeadows Road.
