Traffic Watch: Lane closures ahead on 79th Street Causeway, I-95 and the Turnpike

Lane closures and other restrictions are in effect this week due to roadwork on several expressways and surface roads, including the 79th Street Causeway where workers are replacing a water line.

Between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., workers will be installing the new 36-inch water line from Pelican Harbor Drive and East Drive in the vicinity of North Bay Village. The $1.8-million project is expected to be completed by month’s end.

Meanwhile, all lanes on northbound I-95, including the express lanes, at NW 30th Street, will be closed for sign installation through Friday from midnight to 5:30 a.m. nightly.

Also, all westbound lanes on NW 25th Street will be closed at the 826 intersection through July 17 — excluding Saturday and Sunday — from 9 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. each night.

On the Homestead Extension of Florida’s Turnpike, one or two northbound or southbound lanes will be closed at various locations between SW 216th Street and Eureka Drive/SW 184th Street between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. through Thursday for widening work. Also on the Turnpike, one or two lanes in either direction between Killian Parkways/SW 104th Street and Sunset Drive/SW 72nd Street will be closed nightly from 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Thursday. Continuing on the Turnpike, one or two lanes in each direction will be closed nightly between Sunset Drive/SW 72nd Street and Bird Road/SW 40th Street from 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Thursday. The two-mile segment will be widened from six to 10 lanes at a cost of $54.4 million until summer 2018.

On U.S. 1 at the Turnpike, one or two lanes in each direction will be closed nightly between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. through Thursday.

On State Road 874, one or two lanes in either direction between Killian Parkway and the Turnpike will be closed nightly between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. through Thursday.
