If you travel on the 826/Palmetto every day, it's time to celebrate because the express lanes the Florida department of transportation has been promising are almost here. Over the weekend, FDOT installed express lane markers which got a couple of drivers to test the express lanes. While the installation is still not done yet, the lane closures will only affect nights between 9P - 5A. For now, FDOT has released a statement saying they will open the Palmetto express lanes southbound from 154th to 74th ST free of charge with more openings to come soon. Once the southbound lanes are done they will start on the northbound lanes, with all express lanes expected to finish by the end of summer 2019.
