South Florida Roads (Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties)


State Road (SR) 847/NW 47thAvenue is a minor arterial roadway in northwest Miami-Dade County which extends north into Broward County.  NW 47thAvenue serves as a north south connection between northwest Miami-Dade County and southwest Broward County.  It is a four lane roadway from the SR 826/Palmetto Expressway to NW 183rdStreet, the beginning of the study area, where it becomes a two lane roadway.  NW 47thAvenue continues for approximate2.37 miles as a two lane roadway into Broward County.  In Miami-Dade County, NW 47thAvenue serves as the dividing line between the City of Miami Gardens and unincorporated Miami-Dade County. The study area ends at Premier Parkway in Broward County;  as NW 47thAvenue  enters Broward County, the street name changes to Palm Avenue.

The purpose of this PD&E project is to provide additional roadway capacity along SR 847/NW 47thAvenue from NW 183rdStreet to Premier Parkway in order to accommodate projected traffic growth in the area. The PD&E Study will evaluate alternatives to increase roadway capacity, provide improved access to transit, and make Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant intersection improvements.   The corridor is mainly residential and it supports noticeable bicycle and pedestrian activity.  The study will evaluate alternatives for sidewalk improvements, bicycle lanes, and curb and gutter improvement.   The study will consider alternatives for facilitation of left hand turns and safety enhancements.  The bridge at Snake Creek Canal will also be widened or reconstructed to maintain consistency with the new roadway lane width.
