PROJECT OVERVIEW

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District Six, is conducting a re-evaluation to update the previous planning and PD&E studies in order to advance the proposed transportation improvements in the Miami Gardens Drive corridor.  These proposed improvements will help meet the anticipated travel demand and improve safety, connectivity, mobility and multimodal use for local and regional stakeholders.

PROJECT DETAILS

The focus of this re-evaluation includes the following roadway improvements:

  • Widening and reconstruction of Miami Gardens Drive to six lanes with a bicycle lane in each direction. 
  • Access management modifications to median openings to improve traffic safety and operations.
  • Noise abatement evaluation.

PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT

FDOT has scheduled a Public Information Meeting. The meeting is an opportunity for the public to discuss the social, environmental and economic effects of the potential improvements, and will be held in an informal, open house format with no formal presentation.
