Traffic Watch: More construction planned for State Roads 836, 826, I-95, I-75 and Turnpike

Roadwork on State Roads 836 and 826 as well as on Interstates 95 and 75, and the Homestead Extension of Florida’s Turnpike will hamper commuter flows this week in South Florida.

Several ramps on 836 will close intermittently for paving until Thursday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night.

They include entrance ramps from northbound and southbound 17th Avenue; the ramps to southbound and northbound Northwest 27th Avenue; the ramps from Northwest 37th Avenue; the ramps to Northwest 42nd, 45th, 57th and 107th avenues.

Also on 836, the eastbound exit ramp to Northwest 45th Avenue will be closed for installation of a barrier wall and removal of a guardrail through Thursday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night.

There will also be certain lane restrictions on 826 where workers are continuing to overhaul the massive interchange with 836 near Miami International Airport (MIA) and building toll express lanes that will connect with I-75 into Broward County. On I-95, meanwhile, workers also will be continuing construction of toll express lanes into Broward, and along the Turnpike in South Miami-Dade County. Lane restrictions on I-95 generally occur Sunday through Thursday 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. and Friday from 11 p.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.
