Starting Friday night, the southbound 826 exit ramp to West Flagler Street will be closed for roughly three months.
The three month closure will take place in order to even out the ground for a new ramp to Flagler Street.
Now if you to get to West Flagler, you’ll have to drive south on the Palmetto and exit at the Dolphin Expressway east ramp and then follow the signs.
“They’ll come around and follow the signs, to West Flagler Street, go underneath the turn around, underneath 836, and then they can take the eastbound exit to West Flagler Street,” explained Oscar Gonzalez, the 836-826 Project Representative.READ MORE: 77-Year-Old Rafael Diaz Found Safe

The West Flagler Street ramp to Southbound 826 will be closed on Saturday between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
