South Florida Roads (Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties)

 
Welcome
 
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has begun a landscaping project along State Road (SR) 5/US 1/Overseas Highway from South Pine Channel Mile Marker (MM) 28.75 to Spanish Harbor MM 32.98 and Summerland Key from MM 23.69 to MM 25.40 in Monroe County.
 
WORK TO BE PERFORMED
Enhancing the overall aesthetics of the roadway and improving sight lines
Installing trees, palms and shrubs along the shoulders of the roadway
Providing buffers for Florida Keys Overseas Highway Trail 
 
Landscaping should not significantly affect traffic operations. However, one lane may be closed for short periods of time for the unloading and planting of trees. Sidewalk closures will be minimized to small sections at any one time and for as short of periods of time as possible. 
Tasks will be done in stages, and these temporary sidewalk closures will be scheduled to minimize impacts to the public and special events.
 
Temporary closures of one lane of traffic and detours will occur during non-peak hours. 
Non-peak hours are:
 
9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday 
8 p.m. to 6 a.m., Sunday through Thursday
