I-595 begins in Weston, a wealthy suburb built on lakes, where it crosses Interstate 75, which leads to Tampa. North here goes SR-869 or Sawgrass Expressway. The highway has 2×3 lanes, plus a 3-lane toll interchange, and forms the boundary between the suburbs of Plantation and Davie. Most neighborhoods consist of houses that are located on water features, possibly with a golf course. At Broadview Park one crosses Florida’s Turnpike, a toll road from Miami to Orlando. Immediately afterwards you cross the Interstate 95, which runs from Miami to Jacksonvilleruns. The highway then ends in Fort Lauderdale at the international airport on US 1.

The current I-595 was previously intended as I-75, but when it was moved south from Weston, the highway had to be renumbered, this became I-595. The highway was not completed until March 22, 1991, although most of it had been completed before.

Between 2010 and 2014, a 3-lane interchangeable lane was constructed in the central reservation of I-595, as express lanes with tolls. This project cost $1.2 billion and includes 10 miles of I-595 between I-75 and just past Florida’s Turnpike. The project opened to traffic on March 26, 2014.
The interchange lane operates as a toll express lane, with a variable toll collection depending on how busy it is. The toll goes through electronic toll collection (ETC).

Interstate 795 is a future Interstate Highway in the US state of Florida. Also known as State Road 9B, the highway runs between I-95 and I-295 southeast of Jacksonville. The highway is 12 kilometers long.
State Road 9B.
I-795 is part of a projected highway to accommodate new developments south of Jacksonville. State Route 9B hooks south of Jacksonville, with I-795 running only between Interstate 95 and Interstate 295. For the time being, only a connection with US 1 has been constructed. The highway has 2×2 lanes with a pavement for 2×4 lanes.
Planning for I-795 had been going on for years, but was shelved in May 2008 due to a lack of funds. Thanks to a crisis law, the highway was still able to be built, and construction of I-795 between US 1 and I-295 southeast of Jacksonville began in the summer of 2010. This 5-kilometer section was opened to traffic on September 19, 2013, initially numbered State Road 9B.
On April 15, 2013, the 3-kilometer extension of the highway to I-95 began at Nocatee. This part was opened to traffic on 11/12 June 2016.
Phase three included a short extension of I-95 to St. John’s Parkway and began in September 2015. This section opened August 8/9, 2018.

The St. George Island Bridge, also known as the Bryant Grady Patton Bridge, is a bridge in the United States, located in the state of Florida. The bridge spans Apalachicola Bay and is nearly 4 miles (6.6 kilometers) long.
The St. George Island Bridge is a 6,588-foot bridge with 166 spans. The bridge deck is 13.4 meters wide, with one lane in each direction of State Road 300. The bridge connects St. George Island to the mainland. The bridge is a dead end on the island, and is the only connection to and from St. George Island. The bridge is toll-free.
The first connection at this location was the Saint George Island Causeway Bridge, which used causeways, dams in the water. The total bridge length of this bridge was therefore shorter. It is unclear when it was opened. The causeway was replaced by the current, longer bridge between 2002 and 2004. Construction cost $73 million and the bridge was opened to traffic on February 27, 2004.
The bridge is named after Bryant Grady Patton (1896-1954), an Apalachicola politician who built important bridges to islands off the coast of Florida. The St. George Island Bridge was named after him in 1965.
Every day, 3,400 vehicles cross the bridge.
