ESTERO, Fla -Road work on I 75 could cause some temporary lane closures on the northbound lanes of I 75 Wednesday night.

Crews are moving a crane across the interstate as part of a project to connect I 75 to Southwest Florida International Airport between Alico Road and Daniels Parkway.

Drivers could experience temporary road closures until 5 a.m. Thursday morning.

This is part of a $54 million project involving new exit ramps that will give drivers a direct route to and from I 75 and the airport.

The 'Direct Connect' includes a flyover passing over Ben Hill Griffen Parkway.

The construction is expected to wrap up in the spring of 2015.
