South Florida Roads (Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties)

 
Welcome
 

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and the National Park Service (NPS) have started the the design-build process of two new bridges along SW 90/US 41/SW 8 Street/Tamiami Trail from east of Osceola Camp to west of the Airboat Association of Florida (approximately between eight miles and 11 miles west of Krome Avenue). This project will provide additional freshwater flow within Everglades National Park and improve the ecological conditions in the park and in the central Everglades, north of Tamiami Trail.

WORK TO BE PERFORMED

  • Building two new bridges immediately south of the existing roadway
  • Raising a section of roadway where the bridges touch down near Everglades Safari Park to maintain access to the property
  • Removing the section of existing Tamiami Trail roadway next to the new bridges

LANE CLOSURES AND DETOUR INFORMATION

Work will begin once the plans are released for construction.

One lane may be closed during non-peak daytime and nighttime hours. Flaggers will be used to help guide drivers through the work zone.
