South Florida Roads (Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties)


The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has begun two roadway improvement projects along SR 847/NW 47 Avenue from NW 183 Street in Miami-Dade County to Premier Parkway in Broward County. 


  • Rebuilding the roadway and sidewalk
  • Widening the roadway by adding an additional northbound and southbound lane
  • Constructing new medians in the center of the roadway
  • Upgrading the drainage system
  • Installing dedicated bicycle lanes on both sides of the road
  • Upgrading pedestrian ramps
  • Installing new street lighting
  • Upgrading pedestrian and roadway signs and signals
  • Rebuilding driveways
  • Constructing new curb and gutter
  • Replacing bridge over Snake Creek Canal

Permanent work zones will be established and traffic shifts will be used to guide drivers throughout the corridor. One northbound and one southbound travel lane will remain open at all times. Access to driveways and businesses will be maintained during the work. Detours will be used to help motorists around the work. Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.

To do this work safely, it will be necessary to close travel lanes and establish detours at times. Lanes may be closed during non-peak hours:

  • 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., weekdays and weekends
  • 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., Sunday through Thursday
  • 10 p.m. to 7 a.m., Friday and Saturday

Lane closure and project information will be posted weekly on the department’s website,
