Miami, Florida – A new entrance ramp is available for South Florida drivers to the Florida Turnpike from the Dolphin Expressway.
Turnpike officials opened the new entrance ramp to the southbound lanes of the Turnpike from the westbound Dolphin Expressway/SR 836 on Thursday morning.
The new ramp is accessible from the designated left lane on the Dolphin Expressway. Access to SW 8 Street/US 41 is not available from this new ramp. Westbound Dolphin Expressway drivers can still access southbound Florida’s Turnpike and SW 8 Street from the existing ramp from westbound Dolphin Expressway to southbound Florida’s Turnpike.
In order to increase traffic flow through this busy area, there are now additional southbound lanes open on the Turnpike from the Dolphin Expressway to Bird Road/SW 40 Street.
