Florida DOT Hopes New Warning Sings Will Make Parts of I-95 Safer Place for Drivers

Warning signs are now up and visible at an Interstate-95 intersection in Boca Raton that's been plagued with crashes.  

The changes happened Monday night into Tuesday at the southbound Congress Avenue exit. The new signs say "Exit Only" on the road leading to the exit and are painted in reflective markers at the right turn of the intersection. 

An arrow also points to the right and there's yellow paint on the curb below the markers.  

The changes come quickly after a tow-truck worker fell to his death last week at an intersection known for accidents. That crash happened April 12 as a tractor-trailer driver left I-95 at the Congress Avenue exit and failed to turn right. The truck barreled over a median and overturned on a bridge wall. 

Following the accident, a tow truck worker was working on the bridge wall when he slipped and fell to his death onto I-95. 

Officials hope the new signs and markings will make the area safer. 

Florida Department of Transportation plans for the intersection to also call for 5 mile per hour right-turn signs and signal-ahead signs.
