Heading north on Interstate 95 this weekend might be a little more crowded than usual.

That’s because the northbound 95 express lanes will be closed all weekend for repairs.

Beginning at 9 p.m. Friday through 11 a.m. Sunday, the express lanes will be shut from State Road 112 (Airport Expressway) to the Golden Glades Interchange.

The closure — which could be postponed if there is bad weather or any other unforeseen conditions — will allow workers to remove the existing concrete barrier wall between Northwest 60th Street and Northwest 79th Street.

The lane closures are part of the I-95 Design/Build Project, which will add five emergency stopping areas on I-95 from Northwest 62nd Street to Northwest 131st Street and replace the concrete pavement from Northwest 29th Street to Northwest 79th Street.
