BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Get ready for a major traffic headache if you are traveling in east Boca Raton this weekend. Part of Glades Road will be closed, requiring the use of detours.

The Florida Department of Transportation as well as the Boca Raton Police Department are both issuing advisories about the closure. Here is the official language from Boca PD:

“TRAFFIC ALERT for Boca Raton – Glades Rd at FEC railroad crossing will be closed for repairs beginning TOMORROW – SATURDAY, May 1 at 6AM to Monday night, May 3 at 11:59PM.(Note: May 4 is a contingency day.) This is a full closure east and westbound.Plan ahead, DETOURS will be in place.”

To put this in the simplest terms possible: Glades Road, east of I-95, will be challenging. As you approach the railroad tracks which are just west of Dixie Highway, traffic may go from bad to very bad. Glades will be impassible at the tracks.

Suggestions: use Palmetto Park Road to the south, Yamato to the north.
