BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — It apparently takes a lot of time to construct express lanes that start and stop in the middle of an interstate with very little time to maneuver traffic. That’s the takeaway as FDOT continues to warn of I-95 closures and slowdowns as express lane creation continues. Our snark is intentional. If you haven’t attempted to enter or exit the new express lanes in the area of the Glades and Palmetto Park Road ramps on I-95, you haven’t truly experienced the white-knuckle driving that will be a new way of life for commuters, and and what may become a frequent call location for rescue workers.

Here’s the latest update from FDOT about ongoing and pending I-95 issues:
