MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A small plane made an emergency landing late Friday night on the westbound lanes of the Sawgrass Expressway, just east of University Drive.

A couple of lanes were blocked on the highway as authorities were investigating the incident.

Authorities urged drivers to avoid the area as Sawgrass northbound ramps at Sample Rd., University, & Coral Ridge were closed.

The pilot of the Piper PA-28, who was the only occupant aboard, was said to be uninjured.

The plane had been moved to the side of the highway by 11:30 p.m.
