Construction to Close Roads Leading to Port Everglades

If you are leaving on a cruise out of Port Everglades, you will need to allow extra time for arriving at the port.

Two major construction  projects have closed the ramps from U.S. 1 to I-595 and the port, and from the airport (FLL) to southbound U.S. 1.  The projects are not scheduled to be completed until the summer of 2014.

There were reports of massive morning backups the day after construction began last week.  If you are going to the port for a cruise in the next 12 months this is what you need to know:

  • Give yourself extra time, don’t try and embark on your cruise at the last minute.
  • If coming from the Miami area and you are traveling north on  U.S. 1, take Southeast 30th Street to Southeast 6th Avenue and follow the detour to the Eller Drive Extension.

Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Fl is home to cruise ships from 7 cruise lines and is the home to the two largest cruise ships in the world, the Allure and Oasis of the Seas.
