Broward Express Lane construction begins

Headline Goes Here

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. - Three years and $106 million from now, Interstate 95 in Broward County will have its own set of Express Lanes.

The project will extend the existing toll lanes in Miami-Dade County from the Golden Glades interchange to just past the I-595 interchange.

Construction was expected to begin Monday night after crews will set out cones blocking an outside lane in both directions of I-95 from the Golden Glades and Griffin Road. Eventually, one lane will be added in each direction of the 13-mile stretch.

The lanes will be closed from 9 p.m. through 5 a.m., Monday through Thursday, for the next several weeks.
