About SR 710 in Florida
Also known as Bee Line Highway, State Road 710 or SR 710 in Florida is a 57-mile northwest-southwest route that connects State Road 70 just near Okeechobee, about 3 miles from Lake Okeechobee’s northern tip in south central Florida to the Old Dixie Highway. The Bee Line Highway does not have a curve or a turn in the 48 miles southeast of Sherman. The highway is also referred to as Warfield Boulevard in some areas.
Traversing the woodlands and wetlands north and east of Lake Okeechobee, the Bee Line Highway passes through an occasional farm near the northeast end of the road. A large number of trucks use Florida SR 710 as an alternative to other routes. Along the way, the road passes through Indiantown and West Palm Beach.
Florida SR 710 Accident
Motorists traveling on SR 710 in Florida know that the highway can be dangerous. This road is an important multi-modal facility, and large trucks account for approximately 25% of the highway’s daily traffic. Designated as a hurricane evacuation route, this road can become very congested after a hurricane disaster.
Road extension and widening projects are being considered for SR 710 from SR 70 to US 441 to reduce congestion of truck traffic in the city of Okeechobee. While road improvements provide convenient travel when the road contraction projects are completed, ongoing constructions can add to congestion and drivers’ confusion, increasing the possibility of highway accidents.
