The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is scheduled to begin a roadway construction project the week of January 16, 2018, along SR 986/SW 72 Street/Sunset Drive from SW 87 Court to SW 84 Place in Miami-Dade County.  


  • Repaving and restriping the roadway
  • Extending the westbound and eastbound auxiliary lanes
  • Updating pedestrian ramps and signage to current standards
  • Replacing mast arms at the northwest, northeast and southwest corners at the intersection of SW 72 street and SW 87 avenue
  • Improving pedestrian signalization


To do this work safely, it will be necessary to perform traffic shifts and close travel lanes at times. Lane closures will generally be scheduled during non-peak hours on non-event days/nights/weekends. Non-peak hours are:

·        9 a.m. to 3 p.m., weekdays and weekends

·        9 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., Sunday through Thursday nights

·        11 p.m. to 7 a.m., Friday and Saturday nights

Note: Extended lane closures will be necessary during certain phases of construction
