The Florida Department of Transportation has scheduled the closures of all northbound lanes on the Veterans Expressway this weekend from Friday night to Saturday early evening, September 29 and September 30.

The closure is so crews can remove and replace asphalt on the approach to Rocky Creek Bridge. To perform this work safely, traffic will be detoured off the Veterans Expressway at Linebaugh Avenue.

Work will begin Friday night at 10 p.m. Weather permitting, the lanes northbound should reopen at 5 p.m. on Saturday.

This work is in addition to the nightly closures happening all week on the Veterans. You can read about those closures here.
