Northbound express lanes on I-95 shut down for overnight construction were closed until about 11 a.m. Friday morning, adding long delays to commuter traffic.

The Florida Department of Transportation attributed the closures to “unexpected delays during nighttime construction activities.”

The construction is part of the I-95 Design/Build project, which adds five emergency stopping sites on I-95 from Northwest 62nd Street to Northwest 131st Street and replaces the pavement from Northwest 29th to Northwest 79th Street. It wasn’t immediately clear when the lanes would be opened.
