Getting really tired of the construction on Sunrise Blvd and the Florida Turnpike, looked up the project and found good news as well as bad.
Working south of Sunrise and commuting on the turnpike, the Good News is that a new ramp from the North Bound lanes to East Bound Sunrise Blvd. is being constructed. The Bad News is that the project is scheduled to be completed late 2019!
Improving traffic flow through modifications to the interchange at Florida’s Turnpike and Sunrise Boulevard (Exit 58)
Adding a new entry ramp to the southbound Turnpike from eastbound Sunrise Boulevard and a new exit ramp from the northbound Turnpike to eastbound Sunrise Boulevard
Removing the existing toll plaza at the northbound Turnpike entrance and converting all ramps to all-electronic tolling. Some tolling points will be moved as part of this change
On Sunrise Boulevard:
Replacing and raising the existing bridge over the Turnpike
Widening lanes between NW 56th Avenue and 47th Avenue
Adding a bicycle lane on the north side of Sunrise Boulevard and making accommodations to allow adding a south side bicycle lane later
Adding an enclosed pedestrian walkway on the north side of the bridge
Installing new noise reduction barriers along the outside shoulder of the new elevated southbound entrance ramp, replacing the barriers that will be temporarily removed during ramp construction
Reducing the concrete barrier wall that currently separates the ramps from the Turnpike to improve safety
