Q Bridge Opens Early

A traffic shift on I-95 at the new Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge, known as the Q Bridge, finished ahead of schedule.

Crews worked to shift traffic from the old bridge onto the new one from I-95 South. Work began Friday night and it was supposed to finish Monday morning, but crews finished Sunday morning instead.

Travel lanes on I-95 South between Woodward Avenue/Lighthouse Point (Exit 50) and Sargent Drive (Exit 46), the I-91 South connection to I-95 South and the I-95 South on-ramp from Exit 50 reopened a day early.
