Traffic on Palmetto Expressway in Doral to change this weekend


Changes are on the way for the Palmetto Expressway in Doral this weekend as a new temporary ramp open Sunday at Northwest 25 Street.

The change means drivers will have to exit about a half-mile earlier immediately after the State Road 836 to get to the new ramp. The existing northbound Palmetto or SR 826 exit ramp to Northwest 25 Street will be permanently closed.

To open the new ramp, a few closures will take place.

At 11 p.m. on Friday, the existing northbound Palmetto exit ramp to Northwest 25 Street will be closed until the new ramp opens.

Northbound drivers on the Palmetto wanting to exit at Northwest 25 Street will have to exit at Northwest 36 Street. The east and westbound SR 836 ramp to northbound Palmetto will be closed.

On Sunday morning, drivers on westbound SR 836 going north on the Palmetto will be on a new traffic pattern that will be in full effect Monday morning.

The planned opening of the ramp may change due to bad weather or other unforeseen conditions.
