The construction will also add another southbound lane, and an exit to Philips Highway and Atlantic Boulevard will be added on I-95 northbound.

"From 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., so this is not going to affect your commute to work," Goldman said. "Getting your kids to school, other daytime activities."

McCall is still getting over the fact that the value of his house has tanked because of this project.

As construction begins, he has more immediate concerns.

"Rumor has it that they're going to be doing a lot of it at night," McCall said. "It makes it a whole lot of fun to try and sleep while you got a jack hammer going all night, so that may be more and more of an inconvenience."

The second and last open house will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday at the FDOT training facility off I-10 and Stockton Street, the same venue used Wednesday night.
