MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Expected to change over the weekend, the opening of the new northbound SR 826 ramp to NW 25th Street has been postponed.

Originally set to be finished by Sunday, October 6th, the project contractor of the new ramp decided to postpone the opening due to recent rains that have saturated the lime rock material used to construct the roadway.
