BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Florida Department of Transportation is again set to close I-95 in Boca Raton this week. The latest closure will affect northbound traffic which will be forced off of the Interstate and to moved to feeder roads.

The closure will occur overnight Tuesday, and is described by FDOT this way: “SR-9/I-95 northbound at SR-808/Glades Road will be closed to traffic overnight, 11 p.m., until 5 a.m., Tuesday, Dec. 13 for overhead structure installation. During this closure, northbound motorists will be detoured via the SR-9/I-95 northbound exit ramp to SR-808/Glades Road, US-1/Federal Highway and SR-794/Yamato Road. FHP will be on site to assist motorists. Wednesday, Dec. 14 will be used as a contingency night if needed. 95 Express Lanes Phase 3B-2 will extend the existing Express Lanes north from just south of Glades Road.”

This is a schematic of what the “Diverging Diamond” and Glades Road and I-95 will look like. Many readers have reached out to say the signs are hung incorrectly. They are not. Traffic will move in a largely counter-intuitive manner starting in early 2023. (FDOT).

The work is part of the ongoing express lane expansion in the area, as well as the “Diverging Diamond” traffic pattern that is already causing chaos in Boca Raton. The diamond will send traffic in counter-intuitive directions on Glades Road over I-95, already marked by traffic signs seemingly facing the wrong way on Glades Road. It turns out the signs are not hung incorrectly. Eastbound traffic will move to what are now the westbound lanes, while westbound traffic will move to the eastbound lanes.
