    Lane closures will begin Friday night at 10 p.m. as the Florida Department of Transportation puts into effect a new traffic pattern at the State Road 836 and State Road 826 interchange.

    The department announced that beginning Monday morning, the westbound SR 836 flyover ramp that is on the left hand side leading to SR 826 South will be permanently closed.

    Once the ramp is shut, drivers heading west on SR 836 who want to get onto SR 826 North or South will need to exit earlier, at the NW 72nd Avenue/SR 826 ramp that is on the right after NW 57th Avenue. By exiting there, drivers can “access the exit ramps to NW 72 Avenue, SR 826 north and the loop ramp to SR 826 south that will have been widened to two lanes,” the FDOT said.

    The department emphasized that the exit ramp and lanes to access NW 72nd Avenue and SR 826 will be separated from the rest of westbound SR 836 by concrete barrier walls – so drivers who want to get onto SR 826 North or South who do not exit at the NW 72nd Avenue/SR 826 ramp will need to exit at NW 87th Avenue and pay a toll at NW 107th Avenue.

    Closing the flyover ramp “will allow the contractor to construct the new high-capacity SR 836 westbound to SR 826 south ramp as well as portions of the new eastbound collector road system,” the FDOT said, adding that the new traffic pattern will stay in effect for about 15 months until the new ramp is built.

    To prepare for the flyover’s removal and the start of the new pattern, the following lane closures will occur, the FDOT said:

    Friday, Feb. 24/Saturday, Feb. 25, 10 p.m. to 9:30 a.m.:

    • One westbound lane on SR 836 will close from NW 72 Avenue to SR 826. Two westbound lanes will remain open.
