FDOT is doing the study to consider interchange modifications to improve roadway capacity and enhance traffic operations at the interchange, which includes the intersection at Davis Boulevard (SR 84) and Collier Boulevard (SR 951). The project is needed to enhance traffic operations and safety in the study area, increase freight mobility and economic competiveness in this area of Collier County.
The goal of this study is to develop concepts that meet these expectations, minimize social, economic and environmental effects, incorporate community input and receive agreement from local, state and federal agencies.
Collier County will begin widening of Davis Boulevard (SR 84) and Collier Boulevard (SR 951) in the fall of 2011. Additionally, FDOT will be constructing ramp improvements to the I-75 / SR 951 (Collier Boulevard) interchange beginning in late 2011 or early 2012. The study compliments these projects by providing a concept that incorporates and builds on these improvements.
