Construction on the Phase 2 of 95 Express began in November 2011, will last until spring 2015, and will cost an estimated $112 million. 95 Express Phase 2 will extend the existing express lanes north from the Golden Glades Interchange, in Miami-Dade County, to Broward Boulevard, in Broward County, by converting the existing High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes into two express lanes in each direction. Other work includes: installing Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) components; modifying the Ives Dairy Road interchange; bridge widening at specific locations; and installing new noise walls at locations between Hollywood Boulevard and Taft Street.

  • Installation of tolling and Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) equipment is on-going throughout the project limits. Most work is being done behind barrier wall, away from traffic, during daytime hours and will continue for the next several months. When necessary, travel lanes are closed at night, between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., Sunday through Thursday and from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m., Friday and Saturday.  Travel lanes on entrance and exit ramps and local streets are closed as necessary.

How To Use 95 Express
  • 95 Express Lanes are currently in operation in Miami-Dade County from the Golden Glades interchange to downtown Miami.
  • Enter the express lanes at one of the designated entry points.  Express lanes are separated from general traffic lanes by a barrier of flexible plastic poles.
     
  • Tolls are collected electronically using a SunPass transponder which can be purchased at Publix, CVS Pharmacies or Turnpike service plazas.
     
  • Tolls are based on congestion pricing, which means the toll goes up or down depending on how many vehicles enter the lanes at a time.  Toll amounts are displayed on the overhead electronic signs before each of the entrances.
     
  • Toll free users of the lanes must register with South Florida Commuter Services.
