With hurricane season beginning June 1, Palm Beach County and the Florida Department of Transportation are taking advantage of lower traffic volumes to conduct a hurricane preparedness exercise.

On May 30, from 6 a.m. to noon, the intersection of Okeechobee Boulevard and Jog Road will temporarily become a one-lane roundabout.

The exercise will test the safety and effectiveness of a roundabout in the case of a loss of power.

Drivers should be prepared for lane closures and a change in traffic control at the intersection.

During the test, FDOT staff will be on-site monitoring the exercise.
