South Florida Roads (Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties)

 
Welcome
 

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) began a bridge rehabilitation project the week of March16, 2020, along State Road (SR) 5/US 1/Overseas Highway over Cow Key Channel Bridges (MM 4.1), in Monroe County.

WORK TO BE PERFORMED

  • Replacing sections of the bridges deck spans and beams
  • Repaving and restriping the roadway

MAINTENANCE OF TRAFFIC

To do this work safely, temporary nighttime lane closures will take place during the first month of construction.

Beginning mid-April, work will be done on one bridge at a time and traffic will be shifted to the other bridge while work is underway. Traffic shifts will be implemented to provide three lanes of traffic at all times:

  • Weekdays
    • 4 a.m. to 10 a.m. – Two inbound lanes and one outbound lane
    • 10 a.m. to 4 a.m. – One inbound lane and two outbound lanes
  • Saturdays
    • Two inbound lanes and one outbound lane
  • Sundays
    • One inbound lane and two outbound lane

The outbound US 1 left turn lane onto College Road South will be prohibited. Motorist will be detoured to College Road North.

PLANNED ACTIVTIES 

Starting Sunday, April 5 through Friday, April 10, the Cow Key Project will continue to have nighttime lane closures now starting at 8 p.m. The closures will be in different locations each night, so please be aware the traffic patterns may change nightly. Work along the bridges will consist of detour preparation efforts.

In addition, the temporary traffic signal on North College Road will be installed during daytime hours. Possible daily lane closures will take place from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Please note that this schedule may change due to bad weather or other unexpected conditions.
