South Florida Roads (Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties)


In 2016, the SR 9/SR 817/NW 27 Avenue Corridor (referred to as the NW 27 Avenue Corridor) was identified by the Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit (SMART) Plan to be prioritized for premium transit services.  The SMART Plan was formulated by the Miami-Dade County Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) that seeks to improve mobility within Miami-Dade County.  The plan calls for the implementation of six (6) priority rapid transit corridors as well as eight (8) corresponding express bus routes on corridors of regional significance.

The SMART Plan was adopted by the Miami-Dade Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) Governing Board in April 2016, which formally set the plan into action.  FDOT has initiated Project Development and Environmental (PD & E) studies on the NW 27 Avenue corridor, referred to as the North Corridor in the SMART Plan.

This study will focus on the implementation of an exclusive premium transit running way and infrastructure on NW 27 Avenue.  The study will include transit stations/stops located along NW 27 Avenue near major intersections with the study limits.  Additionally, the study will also include public and/or private facilities located adjacent to or off-corridor where potential park-and-ride and/or transit terminals (including the Miami-Dade College North Campus) will be considered.
