The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District Six, is conducting a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study for SR 934/NE 79th Street (John F. Kennedy Causeway) from west of Pelican Harbor Drive to east of Adventure Avenue. The project is located in the City of Miami and North Bay Village in Miami-Dade County, Florida.

Project Improvements

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate bridge replacement alternatives and to address structural deficiencies of four existing bridges (two bridge pairs) along SR 934/NE 79th Street (John F. Kennedy Causeway).

Other objectives include:

  • Including new and/or improved paved shoulders, marked bicycle lanes and sidewalks. SR 934/NE 79th Street provides a direct connect to various area neighborhoods including North Bay Island, Harbor Island, and Treasure Island to the mainland.
  • SR 934/NE 79th Street serves as part of the emergency evacuation route network designated by the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) and Miami-Dade County and plays a critical role in facilitating traffic between the heavily populated beaches and the Miami mainland during emergency evacuation periods.


This PD&E Study started in August 2022 and is expected to be complete in summer 2024. The design phase begins once the PD&E Study is complete.
