Plans call for three reversible express toll lanes in I-595's median. Most ramps will be rebuilt with a new
"braided" design that takes exiting traffic over drivers entering the highway. S.R. 84 will be completed between
Davie Road and State Road 7 to serve as a frontage road for local traffic.
About two miles of Florida's Turnpike, north and south of I-595, also will be rebuilt along with some of the
ramps that connect the two highways.
The original plans handed off by the state have been refined. Designers have decided to incorporate some
existing bridges and pavement into the construction, rather than rebuild everything.
The University Drive flyovers, for instance, won't be demolished. "They are going to be modified and jacked up,
but they are not coming down," Haddad said.
