PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — The public can learn more about the Florida Department of Transportation’s plan to develop a diamond interchange at Central Boulevard and Interstate 95 in Palm Beach Gardens.

The public workshop will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Palm Beach Gardens Council Chambers.

The project has been in the works for years and now is in the final design phases. Construction is not expected to begin in 2025 with completion expected in 2028.

The existing Central Boulevard bridge that spans over I-95 will become wider and include two 11‐foot-wide through lanes, two 11‐foot-wide left turn lanes, a 7-foot wide buffered bicycle lane and a 10‐foot-wide sidewalk in each direction.

The $61 million project will span 2.8 miles on I-95 from Military Trail to Donald Ross Road.

The goal is to improve traffic flow and relieve some of the congestion at I-95 and PGA Boulevard.
