Construction of Interstate 95’s express lanes from just south of Glades Road to just north of Congress Avenue is over.

The project was “final-accepted” by the Florida Department of Transportation on Feb. 1, project spokeswoman Andi Pacini said.

The $148 million project included converting the Glades Road interchange to what’s called a “diverging diamond interchange” and reconstructing the Clint Moore Road bridge over the interstate.

“Huge congratulations to the team who came in on time and budget despite a complex scope of work and numerous challenges encountered during the course of the project,” Pacini said.

The FDOT started collecting tolls for the express lanes on Nov. 18. Tolls in Miami-Dade County, which was the first to get I-95 express lanes, vary from 50 cents to $10.50 depending on distance, time of day and congestion. The FDOT’s goal is to keep express lane vehicles moving at 45 to 50 mph on average.
