Welcome to the official website for the Interstate 95 (I-95) Interchange / Ellis Road Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study. A PD&E Study is the formal process that FDOT uses to ensure that consideration is given to engineering design, project costs, environmental and social impacts, and public input in the development of major transportation projects.

The basic steps of a PD&E Study include data collection, development and analysis of the alternatives, development of project documents, and securing Location and Design Concept Approval from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Public involvement is a very important part of the PD&E process, and there have been several formal opportunities during this study for the public to provide input on the project.

On October 20, 2015, the Federal Highway Administration signed the Type 2 Categorical Exclusion pertaining to the PD&E study. By signing the Type 2 Categorical Exclusion document, the Federal Highway Administration accepted the location and design concept of the selected alternative. The approved environmental reports and additional supporting documents can be viewed on the Documents and Publications page.
