South Florida Roads (Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties)

 
Welcome
 

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Six and Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise are developing the design of several roadway projects within the Golden Glades Interchange (GGI) in Miami-Dade County.

The proposed enhancements to the GGI Interchange include several miles of roadway and ramps. The overall project will help increase the regional connectivity to this major interchange. The project area consists of the following five major facilities: State Road (SR) 9A/I- 95, SR 826/Palmetto Expressway, Florida’s Turnpike, SR 9 and SR 7/US 441/NW 7 Avenue.

WORK TO BE PERFORMED

  • Rebuilding the Palmetto Expressway between NW 17 Avenue and the GGI to accommodate a future I-95 Express Lanes connection
  • Providing a direct connection flyover ramp from eastbound Palmetto Expressway to northbound I-95
  • Providing protected U-Turns underneath the Palmetto Expressway bridges located at NW 17 Avenue and NW 12 Avenue
  • Relocating NW 12 Avenue entrance ramp to I-95
  • Rebuilding and realigning various ramps throughout the interchange to meet current standards
  • Rebuilding and widening northbound and southbound I-95 from the GGI to Miami Gardens Drive to accommodate future express lanes
  • Rebuilding Florida’s Turnpike Connector at the intersection of NW 2 Avenue and NW 167 Street
  • Widening the southbound lanes of the Turnpike Connector to accommodate two lanes from Florida’s Turnpike and three lanes from eastbound Palmetto Expressway to southbound I-95
  • Providing a direct express lane connection from Florida’s Turnpike to the southbound I-95 Express Lanes
  • Relocating the SR 7 exit ramp of southbound I-95
  • Rebuilding the westbound Palmetto Expressway bridge and entrance ramp to enhance access from Florida’s Turnpike
  • Widening southbound I-95 from Biscayne Canal to NW 135 Street to accommodate an additional lane for the southbound Turnpike Connector
  • Rebuilding the pedestrian bridge at NW 147 Street to enhance pedestrian safety for Thomas Jefferson Middle School, Biscayne Gardens Elementary and the surrounding communities
  • Rebuilding toll gantry
  • Rebuilding and widening I-95 to provide a direct connection from northbound I-95 Express Lanes to Florida’s Turnpike
  • Constructing new express lanes along the Turnpike's median to provide a direct connection to the existing northbound and southbound I-95 Express Lanes
  • Rebuilding ramp connections to meet current standards
     

POSSIBLE EFFECTS DURING CONSTRUCTION AND MAINTENANCE OF TRAFFIC

Work will be done in phases to reduce the effects of construction on the community. Daytime and nighttime work is anticipated as part of this project. Traffic control phasing and lane closure information will be developed throughout the design process. 

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