All but the northernmost five miles (from Royal Palm Beach (Royal Palm Beach, Florida) to The Acreage (The Acreage, Florida)) is signed concurrent with US 441 (U.S. Highway 441 (Florida)), and has been since 1950.

That soon changed, and many middle class and upper class Cubans moved to Florida ''en masse'' with few possessions. Some Miamians were upset about this, especially the African Americans, as Cuban workers were replacing them at jobs. Most Colombians who arrived after the mid-1960s wanted to stay in the United States temporarily. Therefore, increased the number of Colombian illegal immigrants: This immigrants were of 250,000 to 350,000 people in the mid 1970s. Despite a succession of immigration laws, the Colombian population in the United States continued grow. New York remained the most popular destination. Smaller communities formed in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, and Washington, D.C. and , in the 1970s, North Side, Chicago. since the 80´s, many Colombians be established in Miami (especially in his suburbs, such as Doral (Doral, Florida), Kendall (Kendall, Florida), and Hialeah (Hialeah, Florida), and the Weston (Weston, Florida) suburb of Fort Lauderdale). Initially they settle in Little Havana, the largest Cuban neighborhood, engaged, many them, in business of trade between Miami and Latin America. The area also attracted to the Colombian wealthy, who settle there to get medical care, send their children to school, and escape from social, economic, and political turmoil in Colombia. Thus, by 1987 Colombian Americans were one of the Hispanic groups that more grew rapidly in Miami. By the early 1990s, many Colombian American left the metropolitan centers for the suburbs, because to crime, and the high cost of urban living. This trend was started by first time probably in the coastal towns of Connecticut and New York. Thus, the Colombians comunities had a great growht in places as Stamford, Connecticut, Bergenline (Bergenline Avenue) and Englewood (Englewood, New Jersey), New Jersey, Jacksonville, Florida (that attracted a growing number of people from Miami), and Skokie, Evanston (Evanston, Illinois), Arlington Heights (Arlington Heights, Illinois) and Park Ridge (Park Ridge, Illinois), Illinois. Despite of this migration to others areas, the more large communities remained in New York City, Miami, and their environs. In 1990 and 1991, 43,891 Colombians were admitted to the United States, more than from any other South American country. Also, they also were for the first more important group of undocumented immigrants of South America. The 1992 and 1997 were years in which the guerrillas in Colombia increased, so nearly 75,000 Colombians immigrated to the United States in this period, many of them staying in California. http: www.everyculture.com multi Bu-Dr Colombian-Americans.html Countries and Their Cultures.
