Speed Limit Drops on I-95 in Broward County

FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – If you plan on driving on I-95 in Broward County, you might want to slow down.

According to the Sun Sentinel, the speed limit on I-95 in Broward will be reduced from 65 mph to 55 mph, starting Tuesday, April 17th.

The lower speed limit will be in place from the Broward/Miami-Dade county line to north of Griffin Road due to construction projects including construction of the I-95 express lanes between the Golden Glades interchange and Broward Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.

The lower speed limit is expected to be in place until late 2014.

The $106 million project includes completion of two express lanes in each direction and an improved interchange at Ives Dairy Road.

The speed limit on I-95 in Miami-Dade already is 55 mph.
