Navigating the Dolphin Expressway will be a little trickier for drivers starting Sunday and continuing through the holiday travel period.

Various kinds of construction work on the expressway, State Road 836, will lead to lane and ramp closures, mostly in the late-night and early-morning hours. In some cases, all lanes of the expressway or surrounding roads will be closed.

Here’s a breakdown of the various closures and when they will take effect. Drivers are advised to follow detour signs for each of the closures:

▪ The entrance ramp to eastbound SR 836 from northbound Le Jeune Road will be closed through the end of February 2018. It had been scheduled to reopen at the end of December, but has been pushed back.
