State Road 906 was a state highway that existed from the 1945 renumbering until the 1980s. It began at the eastern end of the intersection between modern day SR 997 and SR 9336 and ended at Biscayne National Park; the westernmost two blocks of SR 906 are now the easternmost two blocks of SR 9336.

Route description[edit]

State Road 906 begun at the intersection of current day SR 997 and SR 9336 as West Palm Drive. After heading for two blocks east, it would intersect with US 1 just south of the Turnpike's southern terminus, heading east, becoming East Palm Drive. An overhead sign on US 1 used to display directions to both Biscayne National Park and Everglades National Park, which is to the west via what is now SR 9336. On East Palm Drive, it would pass by Prime Outlets shopping mall, the Homestead Sports Complex, and the Homestead-Miami Speedway; the road continues east through Homestead, ending at the Biscayne National Park visitors center.

History[edit]

The designation of SR 906 was established in 1945 and lasted until the mid-1980s,[citation needed] when the westernmost two blocks of SR 906 were merged with the east–west segment of the former SR 27 to form SR 9336, which was in turn shortened to its current configuration a decade later. The road still exists under local maintenance.

Major junctions[edit]

The entire route was in Miami-Dade County.
