    To date, there has been minimal interruption to traffic in the area, with crews working Sunday through Thursday widening northbound I-95 from Glades Road to Yamato Road. The work begins at 9 p.m. and wraps up at 5 a.m.
    In addition, crews continue to work on interchange ramps and on six of 13 bridges over the interstate and other roads included in the $67 million, 2.5-mile interchange project.
    The project also includes widening Spanish River Boulevard west of FAU Boulevard, building eight new bridges between Spanish River Boulevard and Yamato Road, widening five bridges on the interstate and Spanish River, improving traffic signals, and extending the El Rio Trail.
    A new lane will be added in both directions on I-95 between the Spanish River interchange and Glades Road. New lanes in both directions will also be added between the Yamato Road and Congress Avenue exits. Yamato Road will also get an improved northbound exit ramp and improved westbound entrance ramps.  
    Traffic on Spanish River Boulevard has not yet been impacted, although lane shifts are anticipated in the near future.
    “We don’t expect any traffic impact on Spanish River Boulevard during October,” said Andrea Pacini, project spokesperson.
