South Florida Roads (Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties)

 
Welcome
 

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is conducting a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study for SR 90/SW 8th Street and SR 90/SW 7th Street in Miami. The purpose of this project is to improve the existing and future physical, operational and safety deficiencies along the one-way pair of SR 90/SW 8th Street and SR 90/SW 7th Street, including at the interchanges of these roadways with Interstate 95 (I-95).

This project will evaluate potential physical, operational and safety needs of the project corridor, including the interchanges at SW 8th Street and I-95 and SW 7th Street and I-95. Proposed improvements will be developed to enhance traffic operations, promote safety, provide a multimodal and pedestrian friendly corridor, and provide better access to the Brickell area. The study limits are along SR 90/SW 8 Street/SW 7 Street from SW 27 Avenue to SR 5/US 1/Brickell Avenue.

Gaining community consensus among the varied stakeholders in the study area is essential in achieving a successful project outcome. To meet this objective, FDOT has developed a Public Involvement Plan (PIP) as part of this PD&E Study. Activities implemented as part of this PIP will allow people living and working within the project study area, elected and appointed officials, environmental resource agencies and other stakeholders, to contribute to the decision-making process and to influence the choices that are made regarding proposed transportation improvements for the project corridor. The goal of the PIP is to engage stakeholders to ensure that they understand the nature of the project and its benefits by providing an open, two-way line of communication. In support of this goal, project information will be presented in an easy-to-understand, bilingual format that will be easily accessible at public meetings and presentations. Opportunities to comment include direct communication with project staff by mail, telephone, e-mail or the website and attendance at public meetings.

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by FDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. § 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 14, 2016, and executed by FHWA and FDOT.
