Project Overview

Overview

The Golden Glades Interchange (GGI) Project spans more than 10 miles of roadway and ramps and will enhance regional mobility and reduce travel times by revitalizing this major transportation interchange, which includes connections to five essential roadway systems in the South Florida area: State Road (SR) 9A/I-95, SR 826/Palmetto Expressway, SR 91/Florida’s Turnpike, SR 9 and SR 7/US 441/NW 7 Avenue.

The project has been in development for more than 10 years. Congestion is already a major issue for the interchange, with more than 400,000 vehicles passing through daily, and traffic is projected to increase by 50 percent by 2040. Without the project’s improvements, congestion is only expected to worsen.
