The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise (FTE), is conducting a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study for Florida’s Turnpike from Jupiter (Indiantown Road) to Okeechobee Road (SR 70), in Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie Counties, Florida. The project consists of widening the Turnpike within the project limits by adding general toll lanes and/or express lanes in each direction.
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.
Jenkins Road Project, Development, and Environment Study
The Jenkins Road Project consists of widening existing segments of the roadway from two to four lanes with the addition of bicycle lanes and sidewalks from Orange Avenue to Edwards Road and the construction of a new four-lane segment from Edwards Road to Midway Road with bicycle lanes and sidewalks. The estimated cost of this study is $2.135 million.
Public comment opportunities are provided for a proposed amendment to the Go2040 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) of the St. Lucie Transportation Planning Organization (TPO). The purpose of the LRTP amendment is to add the Project, Development, and Environment (PD&E) Study for the Jenkins Road Project to the 2021-2025 time frame.
