South Florida Roads (Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties)


The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is studying the implementation of rapid transit along State Road (SR) 94/Kendall Drive/SW 88 Street from SR 997/Krome Avenue/SW 177 Avenue to the Dadeland North Metrorail Station. This corridor is part of the Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit, or SMART Plan, which identifies the development of six rapid transit corridors that directly support the mobility of our future population and employment growth. The five other SMART Plan rapid transit corridors include the Beach Corridor, East-West Corridor, North Corridor, Northeast Corridor, and South Dade Transitway. Study activities will be performed in the context of the Kendall Drive corridor, while coordinating with the overall multi-corridor Smart Plan.

This Study is  focusing on improving Kendall Drive through the implementation of a cost-effective, high-ridership, new premium transit service with supporting pedestrian and bicycle facilities. Premium transit modes to be evaluated include Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), Light Rail Transit (LRT), Heavy Rail Transit (HRT), and Metrorail at-grade (powered by overhead lines), on exclusive lanes.
