South Florida Roads (Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties)

 
Welcome
 

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is developing the design for a roadway widening project along SR 25/US 27/Okeechobee Road from west of SR 997/Krome Avenue to east of NW 117 Avenue, in Miami-Dade County. 

WORK TO BE PERFORMED:

  • Widening Okeechobee Road to provide wider outside shoulders, to improve the turning radius at all intersections, and to extend the deceleration length of all turn lanes
  • Widening Okeechobee Road to provide acceleration lanes with 4-foot wide buffer at all intersections
  • Reconstructing Okeechobee Road using rigid pavement at the intersections with SR 997/Krome Avenue and NW 154 Street
  • Realigning the intersection at SR 997/Krome Avenue
  • Widening NW 154 Street at Okeechobee Road
  • Constructing paved shoulders along the frontage roads
  • Realigning and widening the frontage road at NW 186 Street, from NW 137 Avenue to NW 170 Street, and at NW 117 Avenue
  • Constructing a new paved frontage road from NW 129 Avenue to NW 127 Avenue
  • Closing the median opening at NW 127 Avenue and constructing a new median opening at NW 129 Avenue
  • Closing the median opening at NW 17400 Block (west of NW 137 Avenue) and at the Opa-locka West airport property north of Krome Avenue
  • Replacing guardrail along the C-6 Canal (Miami Canal)
  • Upgrading signage, pavement markings, signalization, and lighting along the corridor

MAINTENANCE OF TRAFFIC (MOT):

A Traffic Control Plan (TCP) will be developed for this project in accordance with current FDOT requirements.  This involves the phased construction of the roadway and temporary lane closures.
