WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.-- SunFest starts Wednesday, but traffic tie-ups could start sooner.
Drivers should expect some tie-ups beginning Tuesday through Sunday as more than 165,000 people are expected to visit the downtown area.
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) says with multiple concerts scheduled throughout the week, an art and craft show, fireworks and more, downtown West Palm Beach likely will be a popular destination, and drivers should be prepared for increased congestion on I-95 near the Okeechobee Boulevard and Palm Beach Lake Boulevard interchanges.
FDOT encourages drivers heading to or around the event to use the 511 Traveler Information System before hitting the road to stay up-to-date.
There are four convenient ways for motorists to receive traffic updates:
