Full Nightly Closures of SR 826 and NW 25 Street
Beginning on Friday, November 22 all northbound and southbound lanes on State Road(SR) 826/Palmetto Expressway will be closed nightly between NW 36 Street and NW 25 Street to allow the contractor to erect bridge support girders over SR 826. Please click here to view closure details.
On June 3, 2013, FDOT hosted 70+ municipal staff and elected officials at the FDOT Days workshop. The goal was to engage local transportation partners and share information about how FDOT works with municipalities in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties to improve the development, delivery, operations and maintenance of transportation infrastructure.

Committed to Safety
The Florida Department of Transportation District 6 is committed to keeping you safe on our roads and in our construction zones as we work to improve transportation infrastructure in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. When traveling through a construction zone, please be sure to obey the posted speed limit, watch for equipment, pay attention to our informational signs and never walk or ride your bike through the area.
Working Hard to Get You Where You Want to Go
FDOT D6 is focused on getting you where you need to go. Our team works together to implement traffic plans and detours that allow drivers to move safely through a project work zone.
Focused on Minimizing Impacts
Construction activities are scheduled to minimize impacts to drivers as well as residents and businesses. Work that calls for closing multiple lanes on a major expressway is usually done at night. Work performed out of traffic and off of the roadway can be done safely during the day.
Dedicated to Keeping You Informed
The department uses a variety of tools to keep the public informed about construction projects in their community including hosting pre-construction public meetings and one-on-one meetings with local residents and businesses. Public Information signs are posted on all projects with the website address and the toll-free Public Information phone number.
