The purpose of the project is to provide a truck bypass facility and redirect truck traffic from Krome Avenue to US 1, which will remove truck traffic from the Homestead Historic Downtown District. The proposed widening work will also address existing problems related to traffic congestion.

  • Upgrading existing traffic and pedestrian signals to current standards
  • Installing new drainage and lighting
  • Widening a section of US 1 from south of NE 11 Street to east of SE 6 Avenue
  • Installing a sanitary sewer lift station at the southwest corner of Campbell Drive and US 1
  • Relocating existing trees within City of Homestead limits

Along SW 336 Street/Davis Parkway:

  • Rebuilding this section of Davis Parkway from west of Krome Avenue to US 1 to extend the capacity of existing pavement to facilitate truck bypass
  • Adding right turn lanes at the intersections of Davis Parkway and Krome Avenue and at Davis Parkway and US 1
  • Improving drainage throughout the project limits
  • Constructing curb ramps and sections of sidewalk on Davis Parkway
  • Upgrading lighting, signalization, signage and pavement markings, and crosswalks

Along SW 344 Street/Palm Drive:

  • Adding a southbound right turn lane on US 1 to westbound Palm Drive
  • Repaving and restriping the intersection of Palm Drive and Krome Avenue and a section of Palm Drive at US 1

  • Improving drainage along a section of Krome Avenue
