South Florida motorists may want to stay off the Palmetto and Dolphin expressways during the weekend.
On Sunday morning, the existing southbound State Road 826 ramp to eastbound State Road 836 will be permanently closed and drivers will be shifted onto a temporary ramp, according to the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).
The temporary eastbound 836 ramp will now be the first exit to the right upon entering the existing westbound 836 ramp.
In addition to the opening of the eastbound 836 temporary ramp, approximately one mile of mainline eastbound 836 will be closed. Eastbound 836 drivers will be shifted to the right onto a new roadway after Northwest 82nd Avenue. Eastbound traffic on the new roadway will be shifted back onto mainline 836 just east of 72nd Avenue.
Because of the ramp shift, a number of closures will occur including eastbound 836 just east of Northwest 82nd Avenue between 11 p.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. Sunday, FDOT said in a statement.
Detours will be marked and the closures and shifts may be rescheduled depending on weather conditions.
