ABOUT THE PROJECT

This project involves three individual projects that have been combined to encompass the reconstruction of the entire Interstate-395 (I-395) corridor from the its terminus at the west side of the I-95/Midtown Interchange (I-95/State Road SR 836/I-395) to the its corridor terminus at the West Channel Bridges of US-41/MacArthur Causeway (1.4 miles). The other projects are the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX) 83611 Improvements and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Six I-95 Pavement Reconstruction. The MDX 83611 Project limits are NW 17 Avenue Interchange to the SR 836/I-95/I-395 Interchange (Midtown Interchange), approximately 1.4 miles. Improvements include adding new westbound and eastbound facilities; widening the SR 836 mainline on both sides, adding a new exit ramp at NW North River Drive, bridge rehabilitation, fender system replacement and concrete pavement replacement. The I-95 Reconstruction project involves removal and replacement of the existing mainline I-95 concrete pavement, on and off ramp milling and resurfacing and bridge railing retrofit, approximately 1.582 miles. SR9A/I-95 is an Urban Interstate Principal Arterial and major north-south connector to downtown Miami. Proposed improvements include nightly lane closures during removal and replacement of the concrete pavement, removal of substandard bridge railing and retrofit to meet current rail barrier standards, diamond grinding new concrete pavement and milling and resurfacing of exit and on ramps.

The entire I-395 project corridor lies within the City of Miami, Miami-Dade County, Florida. I-395 is an independent facility linking I-95 (to the south and north), SR-836 (to the west) and the MacArthur Causeway/US-41 (to the east) over Biscayne Bay. I-395 serves as the emergency evacuation route for the southern part of the City of Miami Beach including Star, Hibiscus and Palm Islands. The Department received the Record of Decision (ROD) from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) on July 16, 2010 for this project. The Preliminary Design phase of this project began in June 2011.The anticipated production date for design activities was August 2014. The anticipated start date of construction is late 2017. Construction is anticipated to last five years with an estimated cost of $800M. Click here to view the Project Fact Sheet.
 
Proposed improvements include:
  • Building new elevated ramps (one eastbound and one westbound) that will provide direct linkage between I-95 and I-395
  • Improving roadway design including updating the alignment and upgrading the roadway surface
  • Creating a visually appealing bridge.
  • Building vertically higher structures that will improve the visual quality of the bridge.
