Ongoing construction and the opening of a new ramp on South Florida roadways may cause some traffic headaches for commuters through the rest of the week. Drivers are being asked to pay close attention and follow flashing message boards and fluorescent signs for information.
Here’s a look at some South Florida construction projects that may affect drivers:
The new ramp gives drivers another option to exit SR 836, said Oscar Gonzalez, spokesman for the project.
Earlier this month, the Florida Department of Transportation opened the new Palmetto and State Road 836 interchange, meant to give drivers in both directions on State Road 836 more direct access to the southbound Palmetto as well as West Flagler and Southwest Eighth streets.
