The District Six Transportation Systems Management and Operations (TSM&O) Office is supporting FDOT’s latest capacity improvement project on State Road (SR) 826/Palmetto Expressway.
The project began in March 2022 and is modifying major portions of the facility to improve its travel time reliability and benefit all drivers. It will add a permanent, southbound, non-tolled general purpose lane between NW 103 Street and NW 122 Street, enhance access into the managed lanes system, and improve the geometry of the expressway and the frontage road system. Construction will last approximately two and a half years and the District’s TSM&O Office is providing operational and incident management support during this critical time. The Office is using its suite of traveler information resources to alert drivers of traffic changes on the road and has adjusted Road Ranger schedules to provide coverage during major closures. The TSM&O Office is working closely with the construction team to identify additional areas of support to ensure motorist safety during this time.
