Welcome

The Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) contractor, Ajax Paving Industries of Florida, is nearing completion of the work to widen SR 82 to six lanes from just east of Lee Boulevard to Shawnee Road. This 4.5 mile project adds inside and outside paved shoulders, a five-foot sidewalk on the north side and an 8-foot shared-use path on the south side.

The project includes a new innovative type of intersection on State Road 82 at Daniels Parkway and Gunnery Road, called a Continuous Flow Intersection (CFI). While CFIs are becoming more common in the United States, the Daniels Parkway/Gunnery Road CFI will be the first constructed in the State of Florida. The major difference between a CFI and a conventional intersection is how motorists turn left from State Road 82 onto Daniels Parkway or Gunnery Road.

The most prominent feature of the CFI will be the left turn crossover. This will allow drivers to make a left turn before they reach the main intersection. There will be three sets of signals, one at each of the crossover points, as well as at the main intersection--all interconnected using a single traffic controller.

The CFI intersection will open in early July. Please click/view the video below which demonstrates how to drive the CFI.
