SR 25/US 27/Okeechobee Road Reconstruction Projects


The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has begun developing the design for the modification of SR 25/Okeechobee Road Interchange with the SR 826/Palmetto Expressway. 
Three new flyover ramps including:
  • Northbound SR 826/Palmetto Expressway to westbound SR 25/Okeechobee Road 
  • Eastbound SR 25/Okeechobee Road to southbound SR 826/Palmetto Expressway
  • Eastbound SR 25/Okeechobee Road to northbound SR 826/Palmetto Expressway
Addition of turn lanes at the ramp intersections
Improvements at the W 18 Avenue intersection to provide: 
  • An additional left turn lane from eastbound SR 25/Okeechobee Road to northbound W 18 Avenue
  • An additional right turn lane from southbound W 18 Avenue to westbound SR 25/Okeechobee Road 
The MOT will be designed to minimize adverse impacts to local residents and businesses during construction. Detours and temporary lane closures during non-peak hours will have minimal effects on traffic. 
The public involvement process is designed to ensure public input by actively encouraging and facilitating the involvement of the general public, citizens, interested groups, elected and appointed officials, agencies, and other stakeholders. Opportunities to comment include communication with project staff and attending public meetings.
A Public Meeting was held on Thursday, November 14, 2019 at the Town of Medley Council Chambers located at 7777 NW 72 Avenue, Medley, Florida 33166. You can view the meeting materials on the documents and publications page.
