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 for several roadway projects within the Golden Glades Interchange (GGI) in Miami-Dade County.

The project area includes the GGI and a section of State Road (SR) 826/Palmetto Expressway from just west of NW 17 Avenue to the GGI, for approximately 10 miles of roadway and ramps. This project will help enhance the regional connectivity to five major facilities including 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

  • Providing a direct connection flyover ramp from eastbound Palmetto Expressway to northbound I-95
  • Rebuilding Palmetto Expressway between NW 17 Avenue and the GGI to accommodate future I-95 express lane connection
  • Providing Texas U-Turns underneath the Palmetto Expressway bridges located at NW 17 Avenue and NW 12 Avenue to enhance access and mobility to the area
  • 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
  • Relocating and widening the ramp sizes for the northbound and southbound I-95 entrance ramps located at NW 12 Avenue to enhance safety
  • Relocating the SR 7 exit ramp of I-95 to the intersection of Biscayne River Drive to enhance operations
  • Providing a direct express lane connection from Florida’s Turnpike to the I-95 Express Lanes
  • Rebuilding the eastbound Palmetto Expressway connection between NW 167 Street and Florida’s Turnpike to accommodate two eastbound lanes
  • Combining and realigning the exit ramps along northbound I-95 to northbound SR 7 and the exit ramp at NW 167 Street
  • Rebuilding and widening southbound I-95 from Biscayne Canal to NW 135 Street to accommodate an additional lane for the Turnpike southbound Connector
  • Widening I-95 north of the GGI to accommodate a future direct express lane connection between the Palmetto Expressway and I-95

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.
