Two working class African-American communities that were developed in the early 20th Century are now the site of a 21-acre interchange under construction.
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is in the process of constructing a new $30.5 million interchange at Martin Luther King, Jr. Parkway and 21st Street. Over 20.96 acres was acquired to develop this project that separates the neighboring Northside communities of Phoenix and Longbranch. Both are dense working class African-American communities that were developed in the early 20th Century. The project's contractor is Archer Western Contractors and it is anticipated that it will be completed in late 2013.
