South Florida Roads (Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties)

 
Welcome
 

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is developing the design for a roadway safety project along State Road (SR) 973/SW 87 Avenue from SW 27 Street to SW 20 Terrace, in Miami-Dade County. 

WORK TO BE PERFORMED:

  • Adding a raised island at SW 21 Terrace to restrict eastbound and westbound left-turn and through movements
  • Providing a raised island at SW 20 Terrace to restrict northbound and southbound left-turn movements and through movements
  • Installing new traffic signal structures at SW 24 Street/Coral Way  
  • Extending the southbound and eastbound left-turn lanes at SW 24 Street/Coral Way
  • Providing high emphasis crosswalks at SW 24 Street
  • Adding pedestrian countdowns and warning signs at SW 24 Street
  • Enhancing traffic signage

MAINTENANCE OF TRAFFIC (MOT):

Temporary lane closures will be during non-peak hours and will have minimum impacts on traffic. Access to all businesses will be maintained during construction. Pedestrian facilities will be temporarily closed while being repaired.
