South Florida Roads (Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties)


The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has begun a roadway lighting improvement project along sections of SR 5/US 1/South Dixie Highway from SW 344 Street to SW 56 Street in Miami-Dade County.  


  • Upgrading existing light poles with a new Light Emitting Diode (LED) fixture at select signalized intersections with pedestrian crossings to increase brightness and meet the new FDOT lighting requirement
  • Removing and/or replacing existing light poles at select locations
  • Adding new light poles with LED fixtures at signalized intersections along select corridors


Access to driveways and businesses will be maintained during the work. Pedestrian detours may be used as needed in areas where work is being performed, but 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 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., Sunday through Thursday
  • 11 p.m. to 7 a.m., Friday and Saturday

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