Roebuck Road Closure Could Mean Delays for Morning and Evening Commute
Palm Beach County officials have closed Roebuck Road between Haverhill Road and the Turnpike. The closure will continue for six to eight weeks. Drivers are being detoured through the Haverhill/Okeechobee and Military Trail/Okeechobee intersections. The detour has caused some delays in the morning commute, and major delays for drivers in the afternoon/evening rush hour.
County traffic staff has implemented new timing plans for those key intersections and have been monitoring them in the field and on the video display in the PBC Traffic Management Center. Traffic officials continue making adjustments, in an effort to balance out the delay experienced by vehicles on the key approaches. Congestion is anticipated to continue throughout the duration of the detour.
