MIAMI (CBSMiami) – There’s traffic trouble on the horizon as another round of lane closures on a big stretch of I-95 is set to begin Tuesday.

All northbound I-95 lanes will be closed from SR 836/I-395 to SR 112/I-195 so crews can safely install overhead sign structures that span over the entire roadway.

“This has to be done. We’re dealing with structures that weight 20 thousand to 30 thousand pounds and we are erecting them over the entire span of the roadway. So we definitely can’t have vehicles driving underneath,” said Florida Department of Transportation community outreach specialist Oscar Gonzalez.
