DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — I-95 will close southbound in Delray Beach during the evening of Wednesday, December 7th. Unlike previous closures, this one is starting early — 9 p.m. — which will absolutely create traffic issues for motorists. Detours will be in effect.

FDOT is using this language to explain what’s happening and what you can do to avoid the situation: “I-95 southbound lanes at Linton Boulevard will be closed to traffic overnight Wednesday night, Dec. 7 for overhead sign structure installation. The first lane will close at 9 p.m., the second lane will close at 10 p.m., and all lanes will be closed by 11 p.m., reopening by 5:30 a.m. each morning. Traffic will be detoured via the I-95 southbound exit ramp to Linton Boulevard, Congress Avenue and Peninsula Corp. Drive. FHP will be on site to assist motorists. Thursday night, Dec. 8 will be used as a contingency night if needed.”

The project is part of the I-95 express lane extension and enhancement. “The express lane phase will extend the existing Express Lanes north from just south of Glades Road to south of Linton Boulevard in Palm Beach County,” said an official FDOT communication. “One lane will be added and the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane will be converted to create two Express Lanes in each direction; the number of General Use lanes will remain the same. Access to the Express Lanes will be provided via two designated ingress and egress locations—between Glades Road and Spanish River Boulevard and between Yamato Road and Linton Boulevard. The scope of work includes reconfiguration of the SR 808/Glades Road Interchange to a Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI).”:

Construction is not expected to close the Florida Turnpike during the hours the I-95 detour will be in effect, making it a potential alternative if you believe you will be affected by the closure.
