Westbound Exit Ramp on Flagler Memorial Bridge Reopens May 17, 2013

WEST PALM BEACH – On Wednesday, May 17, the ramp from the westbound Flagler Memorial Bridge to N. Flagler Drive will reopen and a new temporary traffic signal will be placed into service where the ramp meets N. Flagler Drive, FDOT officials report.

Once the ramp reopens, the following traffic pattern changes will be in effect: westbound drivers who take the ramp to N. Flagler Drive will be required to stop on red at the signal at the base of the ramp; drivers going north or south on Flagler Drive will be required to stop on red at the new signal to allow drivers coming off the ramp to go either north or south on Flagler Drive; drivers going north from the ramp will not be able to turn left onto 6 Street; drivers going east on 6 Street will not be able to go left on Flagler Drive; and drivers exiting the Bank of America drive-thru will not be able to go north on Flagler Drive.

Traffic will stay in this pattern for an extended period of time, until a new at-grade intersection at the replacement bridge and N. Quadrille Boulevard is opened to traffic. Drivers are asked to use caution through this area.
The Flagler Memorial Bascule Bridge (drawbridge) Replacement Design/Build Project includes replacing the existing bridge with a new bascule bridge connecting the Town of Palm Beach and the City of West Palm Beach over the Lake Worth Lagoon and the Intracoastal Waterway. The Flagler Drive overpass will be replaced with an "at-grade" intersection. New lighting, pedestrian features, traffic signals, drainage, and landscaping are also included. The estimated cost of this project is $94.2 million.
