South Florida Roads (Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties)



This project includes improving the drainage system throughout the corridor; rebuilding sidewalk and pedestrian ramps; constructing sidewalk extensions, which will remove about 70 parking spaces; installing a new traffic signal on Collins Avenue at 12 Street; providing new left turn lanes at intersections from 5 Street to 15 Street and lengthening the southbound left turn lane at 5 Street; installing audible pedestrian signals at Collins Avenue at 7 Street and 10 Street; installing new electronic signs at 16 Street and Lincoln Road advising motorists to stop when cars are turning left; installing new street lighting; installing new landscaping within sidewalk extensions; installing new signage and pavement markings, including shared lane markings advising motorists of cyclists; and repaving and restriping the roadway between 5 Street and 16 Street.

To do this work safely, it will be necessary to close travel lanes and conduct detours at times. Pedestrian access will be maintained through protected sidewalk paths around the construction. Lane closures, detours and project information will be posted weekly on the Department’s website.
