Earlier today, the final piece of the U.S. 1 and Matanzas Woods Parkway roundabout opened to traffic. Motorists traveling on westbound Matanzas Woods Parkway now have access to both directions of U.S. 1. Implementing this last piece of the roundabout moves the project into the final phase of construction with only a few remaining items left until completion.
This $2.6 million project also included drainage improvements, highway lighting, landscaping and construction of sidewalks and crosswalks for pedestrians and bicyclists moving through the intersection from the existing trail.
