Fort Lauderale PD Announces Memorial Day Road Closures

Memorial Day weekend is almost upon us, and the Fort Lauderdale Police Department has announced road closures, in preparation for the Great American Beach Party.

They're also warning folks that they'll be out in force this weekend, making sure people don't act a fool.

Police will be erecting barricades throughout the city to restrict vehicular access in residential areas to "local traffic only." Residents who live in those neighborhoods will likely be asked for ID to be able to drive through the restricted areas.

The Great American Beach Party will kick off Saturday morning at 10 and will run until 10:30 p.m.

For that time, police will be closing off sections of Fort Lauderdale Beach and A1A.

Here's what you need to know:

  • A1A will be closed from Las Olas Blvd. north of Castillo St. from 6:30 a.m. Saturday to 1 a.m. Sunday.
  • Northbound traffic on A1A will be detoured west onto Las Olas, north on Birch Road, east on Bayshore Dr. and back north onto A1A.
  • Alhambra, Seville, and Granada Streets will be open to local traffic only.
  • Traffic jams and monster delays are expected from SE 17th St. north of Bayshore Dr.
