South Florida Roads (Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties)

 
Welcome
 

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is developing the design for two roadway safety improvement projects along State Road (SR) 973/SW 87 Avenue from SW 14 Street to north of SW 4 Street and along SR 90/US 41/SW 8 Street from west of SW 90 Avenue to east of SW 86 Court, in Miami-Dade County.

WORK TO BE PERFORMED:

SR 973/SW 87 Avenue from SW 16 Street to SW 4 Street: 

  • Installing a directional median to direct the traffic flow at SW 12 Street and SW 4 Street
  • Providing 50 feet taper length for left-turn movement at the following locations: SW 14 Street, SW 12 Street, SW 10 Street and SW 9 Terrace

SR/90 SW 8 Street east of SW 90 Avenue to east of SW 86 Court:

  • Closing the existing median opening at the intersection of SW 8 Street and SW 90 Avenue and at the intersection of SW 8 Street and SW 88 Avenue
  • Installing a directional median to direct the traffic flow at SW 12 Street and SW 4 Street
  • Extending the existing median at SW 89 Avenue by providing more vehicle storage for left turns
  • Adding a new traffic signal at SW 89 Avenue
  • Upgrading existing traffic signals to current standards
  • Repaving and restriping the roadway
  • Extending both eastbound and westbound dual left turn lanes at the SW 87 Avenue intersection
  • Adding a small concrete island in front of the Festival Plaza entrance to facilitate access
  • Installing signing and pavement markings

MAINTENANCE OF TRAFFIC (MOT):

Temporary lane closures during non-peak hours will have minimal effects on traffic.
