Headline Goes Here

MIAMI - A new northbound State Road 826 (Palmetto Expressway) ramp to Northwest 25th Street opens Sunday.

"The new ramp is going to be half a mile earlier, so once they're approaching the overpass of State Road 836, they're going to have to be on the right-hand side, right-hand lane, in order to exit at the new ramp," said Oscar Gonzalez, a spokesman for the Florida Department of Transportation.

The old ramp closes at 11 p.m. Friday. Until the new ramp opens, drivers can exit at Northwest 36th Street.

The ramp is part of the $560 million SR 826/SR 836 Interchange Reconstruction Project, which is about 70 percent complete.
