Interstate 95 North
An ingress point for Phase 2 of the 95 Express lanes lies one mile north of the Miami-Dade County line. Costing $120 million, work converting the existing HOV lanes into two Express Lanes in south Broward was completed in Fall 2016. Tolling on the managed lanes commenced on October 15, 2016.1 Photo taken 01/23/16.
SR 858 (Hallandale Beach Boulevard) crosses paths with Interstate 95 in a half mile at Exit 18. The drawbridge that carries Hallandale Beach Boulevard over the Intracoastal Waterway to Florida A1A (Ocean Boulevard) made the news on January 29, 2005, when cameras captured the image of an elderly woman, Helen Koton, hanging onto the bridge while it raised to its vertical position. She was able to survive with a few bumps and bruises. These cameras were installed due to the presence of two "blindspots" that cannot be seen from the bridge tender's control tower.2 Cameras were considered for some of the other 13 drawbridges in Broward County, especially as a result of another drawbridge accident on SR 838 (Sunrise Boulevard) in Fort Lauderdale. In that accident, 82-year-old Savitiri Motwane was killed October 2, 2003, as she was unable to hang on to the bridge as it raised to allow clearance for two boats to pass under the Sunrise Boulevard bridge.3 Photo taken 01/23/16.
