Lane closures coming at Glades and I-95 as work on Spanish River Blvd. moves forward

More lane closures are coming to the Boca Raton area as work moves forward on the new Spanish River Boulevard interchange on Interstate 95.

The project, which officials say is now just over 85 percent complete, is heading into a phase that will require nightly closures of the I-95 northbound entrance ramps from Glades Road. The ramps will be shut down from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. from Feb. 6-9.

Drivers traveling north on I-95 through the area overnight on those dates also can expect “pacing” to take place, meaning the Florida Highway Patrol will restrict traffic flow.

Project officials say the restrictions are necessary as crews set beams for the new westbound Spanish River Boulevard bridge over I-95. It’s one of 13 new bridges added as part of the interchange work.

According to a recent project progress report, Feb. 1 marked 1,284 days of construction on the interchange, which is expected to be completed later this year. Work happening in February will include more bridge work, pile driving, pond excavation, ramp construction, lighting installation, drainage work and utility relocations.
