MIRAMAR, Fla. (AP) - Motorists who travel on Interstate 75 in Broward County will find some temporary closures this week as crews set beams for a new Miramar overpass.

On Monday night, the southbound lanes will close at 11 p.m. and reopen at 6 a.m. Tuesday. The northbound lanes will close during the same hours on Tuesday night.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1L3dVdd ) reports drivers will be detoured onto the Miramar exit ramps to cross Miramar Parkway and then re-enter the interstate on the on-ramps.

The new overpass will accommodate a wider I-75 underneath and more turn lanes.

The work is part of a $536 million project to add tolled express lanes between Northwest 170th Street in Miami-Dade County and Interstate 595. Work is set to end in late 2018.
