ABOUT THE PROJECT
This contract involves three individual projects that have been combined into one project. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) projects are the I-395 Reconstruction Project and I-95 Pavement Reconstruction projects and the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX) project includes the SR 83611 project. I-395 Reconstruction Project limits are the entire I-395 corridor from the SR 836 / I-95 / I-395 (Midtown) Interchange to the MacArthur Causeway, approximately 1.4 miles long. The SR 83611 project limits are from NW 17th Avenue to the Midtown Interchange, approximately 1.5 miles long. The I-95 Pavement project limits are from NW 8th Street to NW 29th Street, approximately 1.6 miles long. The contract is Design Build Finance and was advertised on February 8, 2016. The anticipated start of construction is late 2017 and is expected to last five years for an estimated cost of $800M.
The I-395 project involves rebuilding of the I-395 corridor to increase capacity and improve safety by eliminating geometric and operational deficiencies. New elevated ramps, one for both the east and west directions, will provide a direct link between I-95 and I-395. The project includes building a Signature Bridge over Biscayne Boulevard. In addition to the Signature Bridge, the project will provide enhanced streetscape design in the areas underneath the bridge.
The MDX 83611 project is a capacity improvement project. It involves adding new westbound and eastbound facilities, widening SR 836 mainline in both directs. The new eastbound facility will be at NW 12th Avenue to directly connect to I-95 and I-395. The new westbound facility will be from I-95 south providing an exit to NW North River Drive and to SR 836. The FDOT has partnered MDX to fund a portion of this new westbound connection.
The I-95 Pavement Reconstruction project includes removal and replacement of the existing mainline I-95 concrete pavement and bridge traffic railing barrier retrofit. Click here to view the Project Fact Sheet (English) or Project Fact Sheet (Spanish).
