Notice of road closure


Okeechobee County has scheduled a road closure at westbound Northwest 144th Drive (Potter Road) to install a new headwall to improve stormwater drainage within the area. Traffic will be detoured from Northwest 144th Drive (Potter Road) at Cane Field Ditch to Northwest 30th Terrace during the road closure.

The road closure is scheduled for Thursday, July 7,  with periodic lane closures on Wednesday, July 6 and Friday, July 8 (weather permitting).

This project is being completed by the county’s contractor and the entire project is expected to be completed by October/November 2022.

A LED message board advising of the closure will be installed prior to the project start date to provide the public advanced notice. Drivers are urged to follow the detour route, drive with caution and plan ahead to allow for more time to pass through the area as the traffic volume on surrounding streets may be higher than usual.

For additional information on this project, please visit the County’s website at and/or contact County Engineer Stef Matthes at 772-464-3537 Ext. 114 or by email at
