Map of I-95 southbound to Stockton Street ramp closure detours

Westside residents who routinely use the Stockton Street exit from I-95 southbound will need to learn which of two detours will work best for the next year.

The project which the Florida Department of Transportation is calling “Your10and95 operational improvements project” implemented a long-term closure of the ramp from Interstate 95 southbound to Stockton Street for approximately one year, beginning November 13.

The closure may extend longer than a year due to weather, holidays and other unforeseen delays, according to FDOT.

As part of the project’s operational improvements, crews will be constructing new dedicated Stockton and Irene Street ramps in an overall effort to reduce weaving and improve operations on Interstate 10 at Interstate 95.

During this extended closure, motorists on Interstate 95 southbound can take the Forest Street exit to Margaret Street which turns into Edison Avenue or take Interstate 10 westbound and use the McDuff Avenue exit to Edison Avenue – both detours will reconnect to Stockton Street.

Detour signs are posted to help redirect motorists affected by the closure.

Interstate 95 southbound to Forest Street detour:

Motorists traveling on Interstate 95 southbound can take the Forest Street exit and make a right onto Forest Street, then a left onto Margaret Street which turns into Edison Avenue which will reconnect to Stockton Street.

Interstate 95 southbound to Interstate 10 westbound detour:

Motorists traveling on Interstate 95 southbound can also take Interstate 10 westbound to the McDuff Avenue exit. Once at the exit, make a right on McDuff Avenue, then make another right on Edison Avenue which will reconnect to Stockton Street.

The project began in May 2017 with completion anticipated in summer 2020, depending on weather, holidays and unforeseen circumstances. FDOT hired Archer Western as the contractor to complete the $126 million project.
