Sunrise Boulevard and Turnpike Interchange Modification Project

Florida’s Turnpike is improving the Turnpike Interchange at Sunrise Boulevard. Construction began in late 2015 and is anticipated to be completed in late 2019.

Beginning Monday, June 10, the contractor will begin performing construction activities at the intersection of NW 55th Avenue and Sunrise Boulevard. During this work, a portion of NW 55th Avenue will remain closed for approximately two months to allow crews to safely complete construction activities.

During this temporary closure, local area residents will be directed to use NW 56th Avenue for access through the duration of this closure. Pedestrian access will remain open during this closure.

Efforts will be made to limit disruptions for the residents near the construction area. Please note that this schedule may change due to inclement weather or other unforeseen conditions.

At Florida’s Turnpike we thank you in advance for your patience and understanding while we complete this project.

Construction Project Update

Sunrise Boulevard and Turnpike Interchange Modification Project 

Florida’s Turnpike is improving the Turnpike interchange at Sunrise Boulevard. Construction began in late 2015 and is anticipated to be completed in late 2019.

Beginning Thursday, January 24, the contractor for Florida’s Turnpike Sunrise Boulevard Interchange Project will begin performing construction activities along westbound Sunrise Boulevard between the Turnpike entrance and NW 56th Avenue. As part of the next bridge construction phase, westbound traffic will be shifted to the newly constructed middle bridge portion. During these operations, a temporary sidewalk along westbound Sunrise Boulevard will be installed for pedestrians. Residents should exercise caution and avoid the construction area when possible. Please ensure all pets/animals are secured during this period.

This bridge phase is anticipated to take approximately five to six months. Drivers should also allow a few extra minutes for travel through this area during late evening and overnight hours, as single lane closures are scheduled to occur. You may experience intermittent noise from construction in the area.

Please be assured that efforts will be made to limit disruptions for the residents near the construction area as much as possible. Please note that this schedule may change due to inclement weather or other unexpected conditions.

At Florida’s Turnpike we thank you in advance for your patience and understanding while we complete this project.
