Southbound University Drive at Sawgrass Expressway
On August 5, 2020 the Florida Turnpike Authority completed installation of a Dynamic Message Sign along the southbound lanes of University Drive just north of the entrance to the Sawgrass Expressway. This sign replaces an older, smaller message board. Additional work is needed before the new sign is operational--which is expected by mid-September 2020.
Temporary Closure of University Drive at Hillsboro Boulevard
The developer for the charter school located on the northwest corner of University Drive and Hillsboro Boulevard has final work to do on the road at that intersection. At some point in October 2020, University Drive will be temporarily closed for approximately two days. Northbound traffic will be detoured west on Trails End, north on Pine Island Road, and north on Nob Hill Road to Loxahatchee Road. Southbound traffic will be detoured west on Loxahatchee Road, south on Nob Hill Road, south on Pine Island Road, and east on Trails End. This information will be updated as the target date for the work is set.
