The Florida Department of Transportation says vibration from construction on the Overland Bridge replacement project caused a 6- to 7-inch gap open up about 5 a.m. Thursday.
Entrance ramps to I-95 northbound from both Atlantic Boulevard and Philips Highway in San Marco were closed, with drivers diverted to surface streets.
Construction crews tore out the old concrete in one northbound lane of Interstate 95 approaching Southbank and Downtown.
Crews then waited for concrete to arrive to pour a new slab.
FDOT said it would take 2 to 3 hours for the new concrete to cure before the lane and the adjoining lane to reopen. Officials estimate that could happen by 3 p.m.
