The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has begun a roadway project along State Road (SR) 968/Flagler Street from 14 Avenue to 2 Avenue in the City of Miami.


  • Reconstructing the roadway
  • Installing new lighting, traffic signals and pavement markings
  • Eliminating the eastbound lane along West Flagler Street between 12 Avenue and 6 Avenue
  • Converting 6 Avenue between West Flagler Street and SW 1 Street to a two-way street
  • Adding an exclusive bicycle lane
  • Providing new sidewalks and pedestrian ramps
  • Installing new storm water drainage structures


To do this work safely, traffic shifts will be performed to establish permanent work zones and reduce the number of travel lanes.

  • Traffic will be shifted to the south side of West Flagler Street
  • SW 6 Avenue between SW 1 Street and West Flagler Street will be converted to a two-way road
  • On-street parking along West Flagler Street between 6 Avenue and 14 Avenue will be eliminated throughout the duration of the project and will be restored once the project has been completed


Los siguientes cambios a la carretera se han hecho:

  • El carril en dirección este a lo largo de la Calle Flagler entre la Avenida 12 y la Avenida 6 será eliminado permanentemente
