DAVIE, Fla. -

A new ramp opened Friday from Interstate 595 to the southbound Florida's Turnpike.

The new ramp is part of the ongoing efforts to eliminate the weaving movements at the Florida's Turnpike interchange as part of the I-595 Express Corridor Improvements Project.

Relocating the ramp from I-595 to southbound Florida's Turnpike opens a work zone necessary for crews to construct a new bridge to eliminate additional weaving at the interchange, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.
