According to Topschoolsintheusa, I-95 begins just south of Downtown Miami as a continuation of the Dixie Highway ( US 1 ). There is also access to the Rickenbacker Causeway here. I-95 then takes on overpasses with 3 to 4 lanes in each direction along downtown Miami, overlooking the skyline. North of downtown it follows an interchange with Interstate 395 and State Route 836. I-95 then has a short stretch of 2×6 lanes until the interchange with Interstate 195 and State Route 112. Then follows a 15-mile 12-lane stretch to the Golden Glades Interchange with Florida’s Turnpike and State Route 826. I-95 here has a long stretch through the urban area with express lanes.
From downtown Miami, I-95 runs for approximately 80 miles through urban areas parallel to the South Florida coast. I-95 runs right past the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, which also follows an interchange with Interstate 595. I-95 has express lanes until just before Boca Raton. The highway then has 2×4 lanes and leads past the Boca Raton Airport. An endless series of exits to suburbs then follow. I-95 also runs past the Palm Beach International Airport. The highway has 2×5 lanes through West Palm Beach. From Juno Beach, Florida’s Turnpike is right off I-95. Jupiter is the northernmost suburb of Miami that is still in the continuously built-up area.
I-95 then begins a long route through the coastal region of Central Florida. Much of the coastal region is urbanized, but the urbanized clusters do not form a continuous city and are focused on the regional center cities. The first of these is Port St. Lucie, which I-95 curves around, while Florida’s Turnpike running parallel runs through the city. I-95 still has 2×3 lanes here. After that, the routes of I-95 and Florida’s Turnpike split. I-95 then opens up places like Fort Pierce, Vero Beach, and Sebastian. I-95 has 2×3 lanes continuously through this region and is located a few miles from the Atlantic coast.
The highway passes some distance from Cape Canaveral and has an interchange with State Route 528 to Orlando. Here, I-95 bypasses a series of smaller coastal towns such as Cocoa, Port St. John, and Titusville. After Titusville, the most rural part of I-95 follows, which leads here for more than 30 kilometers through non-built-up areas. Then one reaches the urbanization around Daytona Beach. Here is an interchange with Interstate 4. I-95 then continues through Palm Coast, the last major town on the coast of Central Florida.
The First Coast is the coastal region surrounding the city of Jacksonville. Between Palm Coast and the Jacksonville region, there is a 60-kilometer stretch that leads through less densely built-up areas, the highway does have 2×3 driving towers here. At the southern end of the Jacksonville region, it has an interchange with Interstate 795, followed shortly by an interchange with Interstate 295, which forms the Jacksonville beltway.
I-95 runs right through the city of Jacksonville, south and west around the center of the city. One crosses the St. John’s River here, after which an interchange with Interstate 10 follows, which ends here. I-95 has mostly 2×3 lanes through Jacksonville, with some short, wider sections. North of the city you cross I-295 again, after which I-95 connects the airport of Jacksonville. Then follows another 30 kilometers through less populated area with dense forests to the border with Georgia. Interstate 95 in Georgia then continues toward Savannah.
