Florida State Road 826
State Road 826 is a bypass route around the greater Miami area, traveling 30 miles in a northeasterly arc from U. S. Route 1 in Pinecrest to its terminus at State Road A1A in Sunny Isles Beach. Between its southern terminus and the Golden Glades Interchange, State Road 826 is known as the Palmetto Expressway, a traveled freeway with portions of the road carrying in excess of 250,000 vehicles a day. Unlike many of the other expressways in Miami-Dade County, the Palmetto Expressway is untolled. East of the interchange, State Road 826 is a surface road connecting North Miami and North Miami Beach to Sunny Isles Beach over the Intracoastal Waterway. State Road 826 begins at an interchange with US 1 in Pinecrest, just south of the Dadeland Mall, heads north as the Palmetto Expressway into Kendall; the first interchange, less than a mile north of US 1, is with Kendall Drive, which provides access to the mall. SR 826 continues north, crossing under the Snapper Creek Expressway without an interchange before meeting Sunset Drive at a diamond interchange.
It leaves Kendall, continuing into Glenvar Heights with an interchange with Southwest 56th Street/Miller Drive, which provides access to the University of Miami. About half a mile the Don Shula Expressway merges with the Palmetto Expressway at its northern terminus, with a southbound exit and a northbound entrance point. Between this interchange and the next, SR 826 forms the border between Glenvar Heights and Olympia Heights. After an exit with Southwest 24th Street/Coral Way, the expressway meets the Tamiami Trail, providing access to Florida International University; this interchange marks the Tamiami Trail's entrance into incorporated Miami, the boundary of which lies on the eastern side of the expressway. North of the Tamiami Trail interchange, the Palmetto Expressway forms the eastern boundary of Fontainebleau as it continues north to an exit with Flagler Street, the east–west baseline for Miami-Dade County roads; the freeway has an interchange with the Dolphin Expressway just south of Doral, creating access to Miami International Airport.
This interchange is being improved due to the current configuration causing severe congestion. Now forming Doral's eastern boundary, SR 826 continues north to Northwest 25th Street, which connects to the western end of the airport, followed by an exit with Doral Boulevard that links to the Doral Golf Resort & Spa, an exit with Northwest 58th Street. After a brief crossing through unincorporated Miami-Dade County, the expressway reaches an interchange with the Hialeah Expressway in Medley adjacent to the Palmetto Metrorail station, followed by a diagonal interchange with US 27 at the southern end of Hialeah Gardens and Hialeah, it enters Hialeah proper just after an interchange with Northwest 103rd Street, which allows access to the Westland Mall. An exit with Northwest 122nd Street follows. At the boundary between Hialeah and Miami Lakes, SR 826 reaches an interchange with the national southern terminus of Interstate 75 and the western termini of the Gratigny Parkway and SR 916; the Palmetto Expressway goes into Miami Lakes, interchanges with Northwest 154 Street turns through 90 degrees to the east at a point known as "The Big Curve".
The road proceeds straight east, forming the boundary between Miami Lakes and Country Club, soon interchanging with Northwest 67th Avenue. At the next exit, Red Road, the expressway forms the boundary between an unincorporated section of Miami-Dade County and Miami Gardens, with the expressway entering the city proper at the next exit, Northwest 47th Avenue; the expressway passes to the north of Florida Memorial University before the Northwest 37th Avenue exit, where it creates the northern border of St. Thomas University's campus. Still in Miami Gardens, SR 826 has exits with Northwest 27th Avenue, Northwest 17th Avenue and Northwest 12th Avenue before reaching the Golden Glades Interchange. SR 826 takes a convoluted path through the Golden Glades Interchange, it first meets the connector ramps between Florida's Turnpike and Interstate 95, allowing access from northbound SR 826 to I-95 southbound as well as US 441/SR 9 southbound, from the Turnpike southbound and I-95 northbound to southbound SR 826.
After turning to the northeast, SR 826 moves off its mainline at the next exit onto the mainline of the Turnpike which passes over it. Traffic moving from eastbound SR 826 to the northbound Turnpike must pass through an unsignalised intersection here. Headed back southeast, SR 826 first crosses over the former Seaboard Coast Line railroad, begins to form the northern boundary of Golden Glades passes under the I-95's express lanes, meeting the onramp between I-95 southbound and the Turnpike northbound, the onramp between southbound US 441 and eastbound SR 826, it passes over Interstate 95 proper, which lies between the southbound and northbound carriageways of US 441, as it swings back to the northeast and to the east once more. Here it meets its last three ramps, one which allows access from US 441 and I-95 northbound to eastbound SR 826, another from westbound SR 826 to US 441 and I-95 southbound, from westbound SR 826 to northbound US 441. SR 826 resumes its east–west orientation once more at a signalised intersection with Northwest 2nd Avenue, marking the end of SR 826's expressway.
State Road 826 heads east from the Golden Glades Interchange as Northwest 167th S
West Palm Beach, Florida
West Palm Beach is a city in and the county seat of Palm Beach County, United States. It is located to the west of the adjacent Palm Beach, situated on a barrier island across the Lake Worth Lagoon; the population was 99,919 at the 2010 census. West Palm Beach is a principal city of the Miami metropolitan area, home to an estimated 6,158,824 people in 2017, it is the oldest incorporated municipality in Greater Miami, having been incorporated as a city two years before Miami in November 1894. West Palm Beach is located 68 miles north of Downtown Miami; the beginning of the historic period in south Florida is marked by Juan Ponce de León's first contact with native people in 1513. Europeans found a thriving native population, which they categorized into separate tribes: the Mayaimi in the Lake Okeechobee Basin and the Jaega and Ais people in the East Okeechobee area and on the east coast north of the Tequesta; when the Spanish arrived, there were about 20,000 Native Americans in south Florida. By 1763, when the English gained control of Florida, the native peoples had all but been wiped out through war, enslavement, or European diseases.
Other native peoples from Alabama and Georgia moved into Florida in the early 18th century. They were of varied ancestry, but Europeans called them all "Creeks." In Florida, they were known as the Miccosukee Indians. The Seminoles clashed with American settlers over land and over escaped slaves who found refuge among them, they resisted the government's efforts to move them to the Indian Territory west of the Mississippi. Between 1818 and 1858, three wars were fought between the United States government. By 1858, there were few Seminoles remaining in Florida; the area, to become West Palm Beach was settled in the late 1870s and 1880s by a few hundred settlers who called the vicinity "Lake Worth Country." These settlers were a diverse community from different parts of the world. They included founding families such at the Potters and the Lainharts, who would go on to become leading members of the business community in the fledgling city; the first white settlers in Palm Beach County lived around Lake Worth an enclosed freshwater lake, named for Colonel William Jenkins Worth, who had fought in the Second Seminole War in Florida in 1842.
Most settlers engaged in the growing of tropical fruits and vegetables for shipment the north via Lake Worth and the Indian River. By 1890, the U. S. Census counted over 200 people settled along Lake Worth in the vicinity of what would become West Palm Beach; the area at this time boasted a hotel, the "Cocoanut House", a church, a post office. The city was platted by Henry Flagler as a community to house the servants working in the two grand hotels on the neighboring island of Palm Beach, across Lake Worth in 1893, coinciding with the arrival of the Florida East Coast railroad. Flagler paid two area settlers, Captain Porter and Louie Hillhouse, a combined sum of $45,000 for the original town site, stretching from Clear Lake to Lake Worth. On November 5, 1894, 78 people met at the "Calaboose" and passed the motion to incorporate the Town of West Palm Beach in what was Dade County; this made West Palm Beach the first incorporated municipality in South Florida. The town council addressed the building codes and the tents and shanties were replaced by brick, brick veneer, stone buildings.
The city grew during the 1890s and the first two decades of the 20th century, most residents were engaged in the tourist industry and related services or winter vegetable market and tropical fruit trade. In 1909, Palm Beach County was formed by the Florida State Legislature and West Palm Beach became the county seat. In 1916, a new neo-classical courthouse was opened, painstakingly restored back to its original condition, is now used as the local history museum; the city grew in the 1920s as part of the Florida land boom. The population of West Palm Beach quadrupled from 1920 to 1927, all kinds of businesses and public services grew along with it. Many of the city's landmark structures and preserved neighborhoods were constructed during this period. Flagler intended for his Florida East Coast Railway to have its terminus in West Palm, but after the area experienced a deep freeze, he chose to extend the railroad to Miami instead; the land boom was faltering when city was devastated by the 1928 Okeechobee hurricane.
The Depression years of the 1930s were a quiet time for the area, which saw slight population growth and property values lower than during the 1920s. The city only recovered with the onset of World War II, which saw the construction of Palm Beach Air Force Base, which brought thousands of military personnel to the city; the base was vital to the allied war effort, as it provided an excellent training facility and had unparalleled access to North Africa for a North American city. During World War II, German U-Boats sank dozens of merchant ships and oil tankers just off the coast of West Palm Beach. Nearby Palm Beach was under black out conditions to minimize night visibility to German U-boats; the 1950s saw another boom in population due to the return of many soldiers and airmen who had served in the vicinity during the war. The advent of air conditioning encouraged growth, as year-round living in a tropical climate became more acceptable to northerners. West Palm Beach became the one of the nation's fastest growing metropolitan areas during the 1950s.
However, many of the city's residents

Founded in 1925, the city grew in the 1950s and 1960s, is now the twelfth-largest city in Florida. Hollywood is a principal city of the Miami metropolitan area, home to an estimated 6,012,331 people at the 2015 census. Joseph Young arrived in South Florida in 1920 in search to create his own “Dream City in Florida”, his vision included the beaches of the Atlantic ocean stretching westward with man made lakes, infrastructure and the Intracoastal waterway. He wanted to include large parks, schools and golf courses. After Young spent millions of dollars on the construction of the city, he was elected as the first mayor in 1925; this new town became home to northerners known as snowbirds. These snowbirds flee the north during the winter and escape the south during the summer to avoid the harsh climates. By 1960, Hollywood contained more than 2,400 hotel units along with the construction of 12,170 single family homes.
Young bought up thousands of acres of land around 1920, named his new town "Hollywood by the Sea" to distinguish it from his other real estate venture, "Hollywood in the Hills", in New York. The Florida guide, published by the Federal Writers' Project, describes the early development of Hollywood, an early example of a planned community that proliferated in Florida during the real estate boom of the 1920's: During the early days of development here, 1,500 trucks and tractors were engaged in clearing land and grading streets. A Large power plant was installed, when the city lights went on for the first time, ships at sea reported that Miami was on fire, their radio alarms and the red glow in the sky brought people to the rescue from miles around." Prospective purchasers of land were enticed by free hotel accommodation and entertainment, "were driven about the city-to-be on trials blazed through palmetto thickets. Young had a vision of having lakes, golf courses, a luxury beach hotel, country clubs, a main street, Hollywood Boulevard.
After the 1926 Miami hurricane, Hollywood was damaged. Following Young's death in 1934, the city encountered other destructive hurricanes and the stock market crashed with personal financial misfortunes. Following the damage inflicted by Hurricane Irma in 2017, an initiative called Rebuild Florida was created by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity to provide aid to citizens affected by the natural disaster; the initial focus of Rebuild Florida was its Housing Repair Program, which offered assistance in rebuilding families' homes that were impacted by Hurricane Irma.
