Construction on the Phase 2 of 95 Express began in November 2011, will last until spring 2015, and will cost an estimated $112 million. 95 Express Phase 2 will extend the existing express lanes north from the Golden Glades Interchange, in Miami-Dade County, to Broward Boulevard, in Broward County, by converting the existing High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes into two express lanes in each direction.
