A wide trumpet interchange (Exit 350) presently joins Interstate 10 with SR 23 (Cecil Commerce Parkway) south in one mile. Built at a cost of $62-million over a three year period, the controlled-access parkway sweeps southeast from I-10 to SR 228 (Normandy Boulevard) and 103rd Street (SR 134).1 Future work at Exit 350, planned for completion in 2018, will add ramps from I-10 and SR 23 to adjacent U.S. 90 (Beaver Street).2 Photo taken 12/19/13.
