From the Palm Beach Zoo to Rapids Water Park to the Norton Museum of Art, there are nearly endless attractions for locals and visitors alike to visit in West Palm Beach. As the popularity of West Palm Beach grows, there are more and more accidents on the roadways every year. However, there are a few intersections that are more dangerous than any others. Drive safely around these areas or, if possible, avoid them altogether.
This intersection, at the northwest corner of the Villages of Palm Beach Lakes neighborhood, is near many local attractions, including Rapids Water Park and The Ballpark of The Palm Beaches. It is also one of the most congested intersections in the city. And when the ballpark was built there to host spring training for the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals, traffic only got worse.
Located in the Palm Beach Lakes neighborhood, this intersection is where a large residential area meets a commercial zone, divided by State Road 704 — a.k.a. Okeechobee Boulevard. With so much activity in this area, it’s only natural that this large intersection of a divided highway would plagued with dozens of traffic accidents every year.
Though the Riverwalk neighborhood is one of the top-rated in West Palm Beach, it is also home to one of the most dangerous intersections. One of the main reasons there are so many wrecks in this area is that it is an intersection of two multi-lane highways. With so many vehicles moving through the intersection at any given time, wrecks are inevitable.
Located in the Palm Beach Lakes, this intersection is surrounded by great shopping and dining opportunities. Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard utilizes an access road next to the main highway so drivers can quickly access businesses along the road, but that can create some confusion for visitors. Plus, it is an intersection of two multilane highways, which adds to the danger.
This is the third intersection on the list involving Okeechobee Boulevard. Just outside of the Villages Of Palm Beach Lakes neighborhood, this intersection is where an eight-lane highway meets a two-lane local road. There are no turn signals for those on Indian Road turning left onto Okeechobee, which attributes to many of the accidents in this congested area.
