Cemetery Road detour planned


OKEECHOBEE – There will be a partial road closure for road repairs on portions of Cemetery Road (NE 39th Blvd) beginning Monday, Nov. 9 through Friday, Nov. 20.

This partial Road Closure and Detour will be between NE 54th Way to NE 54th Trail and will be a continuous road closure and detour for installation and re-construction of NE 39th Boulevard. The detour will be along NE 54th Trail. The road closure is expected to have a 2-week duration.

Drivers are urged to plan ahead, drive with caution, and allow more time to pass through the area as the traffic volume on surrounding streets may be higher than usual.
