FDOT Widening of Turnpike

Project Details
Current Closures

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise (FTE), is conducting a Project Development and Environment Study for Florida’s Turnpike (SR 91) Widening from Jupiter (Indiantown Road) to Ft. Pierce (Okeechobee Road), in Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie Counties, Florida. 

FTE identified the need to widen this portion of Florida’s Turnpike (SR 91) to add capacity that will accommodate future traffic volumes of freight and passenger vehicles linked to the projected growth in population and industry for the year 2045. Florida’s Turnpike is also a major evacuation route for Southeast Florida.

Numerous bridge structures will need to be widened or reconstructed along with the roadway. The project corridor includes crossings of the Loxahatchee River and St. Lucie Canal. Potential reconfiguration of existing interchanges and new interchange access locations will also be considered as part of the PD&E study. It is anticipated at this time that a majority of the improvements will stay within the existing right of way.

The project limits are from Jupiter (Indiantown Road/SR 706) to Ft. Pierce (Okeechobee Road/SR 70) in Palm Beach, Martin, and St. Lucie Counties. The total project length is approximately 37 miles. For additional information, visit the Florida Turnpikes widening project page.

The northbound Florida Turnpike exit ramp to Indiantown Road will be closed from 10:00 pm on Monday, May 29 to 6:00 am on Tuesday, May 30. During this ramp closure, vehicles will be directed to exit at Beeline Highway (exit 107).

The southbound Florida Turnpike entrance ramp from Indiantown Road will be closed nightly from 8:00 pm to 6:00 am from Tuesday, May 30 through Thursday, June 1. During this ramp closure, vehicles will be directed to use I-95 to access the Florida Turnpike at PGA Boulevard (exit 109).

There will also be nightly single-lane closures on northbound and southbound Florida Turnpike lanes through Thursday, June 1 at various locations between Indiantown Road and Becker Road.
