Existing Collector-Distributor (CD) Bridges over Myrtle Avenue to
be placed in full-service
In 1991, FDOT
completed construction of the north and south bound CD bridges adjacent
to I-95 over Myrtle Avenue. Initially, these bridges service the
Bay Street off-ramp from I-95 northbound, and Forsyth Street on-ramp
to I-95 Southbound and I-10 westbound.
Once the new
interchange is constructed, these bridges will function as part
of a collector/distributor system, separating mainline interstate
traffic from local traffic looking to enter and exit on local roadway
within the interchange limits.
Local traffic using the collector distributor roadways can exit
in the northbound direction at I-95 southbound, Forest Street, Bay
Street and Monroe Street. In the southbound direction, local traffic
using the collector distributor roadways can exit at Stockton Street
and I-95 southbound. These CD roadways will reduce mixing and weaving
movements throughout the interchange, thereby increasing operational
