Daytona Beach, FL - The latest reconstruction along I-95 in Volusia County reaches a milestone tonight (May 20th) as it inches closer to completion.
The Florida Department of Transportation says that the construction team will be opening a roadway called a collector-distributor, which will run parallel to northbound I-95.
That will service exits 260 A, B and C as well as three merge ramps, extending from I-4 to US-92.

But, FDOT says drivers will need to be aware of this new exit if they are headed to eastbound State Road 400, westbound I-4 and US-92. The new exit will occur farther south than the current ramps.
To accommodate the traffic switch to the new collector-distributor road, the northbound I-95 exit ramp to eastbound SR 400 will be closed from 10 p.m. tonight (May 20th) to 6 a.m. tomorrow (May 21st).
Traffic will be directed to exit onto US-92 and take Williamson Boulveard south to SR 400.
Electronic message boards and signs will also be in place to alert drivers to the new traffic pattern. Drivers who miss the exit will need to travel to LPGA Boulevard and reutrn south using Tomoka Farms Road or Williamson.
Work on the $206 million project is expected to be completed later this year.
