South Florida Roads (Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties)

 
Welcome
 

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Six is developing the design for a roadway project along State Road (SR) 976/SW 40 Street/Bird Road from SW 57 Avenue to Alhambra Circle, in Miami-Dade County.

WORK TO BE PERFORMED:

  • Constructing raised medians on SW 57 Avenue just north of SW 40 Street
  • Updating roadway signage and pedestrian ramps to current standards
  • Upgrading signalization in the intersection
  • Installing high emphasis crosswalks at the intersection of SW 57 Avenue and SW 40 Street
  • Improving existing driveways at the Red Bird Center Shopping Plaza for better traffic flow
  • Modifying existing medians on SW 40 Street, west of SW 57 Avenue to provide more vehicle storage room for left turning lane
  • Installing a new drainage system along SW 40 Street, just east of SW 57 Avenue
  • Relocating median openings on SW 40 Street just west of SW 57 Avenue
  • Constructing two bulbouts on SW 57 Avenue south of SW 40 Street, on the west side of the road, one at the corner of SW 57 Avenue and SW 41 Street and the other on SW 40 Street on the southwest corner of the intersection
  • Constructing a new sidewalk and curb and gutter on SW 57 Avenue, just north of SW 40 Street, along the west side of the roadway.

MAINTENANCE OF TRAFFIC (MOT):

Temporary lane closures during non-peak hours will have minimal effects on traffic. Construction work will occur at night in the commercial area to minimize disruption during business hours. Access to local businesses will be maintained at all times.
