South Florida Roads (Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties)


IMPORTANT UPDATE: This Project is on hold. In October 2019, The Miami-Dade County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) selected elevated heavy rail transit as the Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) for the North Corridor. (See Resolution 55-19 here.) On 4/23/20, the Governing Board accepted a report by Miami-Dade County's Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) on alternative transit technologies for NW 27 Avenue.  It is anticipated the County's DTPW will initiate a Request for Proposals to see if transit technologies (other than Heavy Rail) are viable for the corridor.

Project Overview
The Florida Department of Transportation is studying the implementation of rapid transit service and infrastructure along the NW 27 Avenue Corridor extending from NW 215 Street to approximately NW 38 Street along NW 27 Avenue and from the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC) at Miami International Airport (MIA) to NW 27 Avenue via State Road (SR) 112.  Refer to the project map below.

Purpose & Need
The study will focus on providing transit stations/stops located along the various transit running ways within the study limits.  Rapid transit modes such as Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and rail will be evaluated within the NW 27 Avenue Corridor that is to be part of an overall interconnected premium transit network
