The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has begun a bridge rehabilitation and roadway project along SR 826/Sunny Isles Boulevard on the week of August 16, 2021 in Miami-Dade County.

Over the Intracoastal Waterway Bridge Repairs:

  • Repairing structural, mechanical and electrical bridge components
  • Replacing the deck to improve the riding surface and reduce noise
  • Painting the structural steel
  • Upgrading the emergency bridge generator and fuel tank

From NE 35 Avenue to SR A1A/Collins Avenue:

  • Repaving and restriping the roadway and ramps
  • Enhancing pedestrian ramps and bicyclist railing
  • Reconstructing damaged concrete driveways and sidewalks
  • Repaving the municipal parking lot at the Intracoastal Waterway
  • Relocating the bus shelter at westbound SR 826 west to improve vehicle sight distance
  • Adjusting and constructing storm drains and manholes
  • Renaming the existing “Business Loop” signage to “Gateway Loop”
  • Reconstructing the traffic island at the intersection of SR 826 and North Bay Road and moving the stop bar and stop sign closer to the intersection
  • Replacing the traffic signal at the intersection of SR 826 and NE 35 Avenue

Travel lanes may be closed and detours may be established at times throughout the project limits. Permanent work zones will be established and continuous lane closures will occur on the westbound and eastbound bridges.

Two westbound inside lanes and two eastbound inside lanes on the bridge are currently closed through summer 2022.

At least two eastbound and two westbound travel lanes will remain open at all times.

A Public Meeting was held both in person and virtually on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Sunny Isles Gateway Center. The presentation is also available for download under the project rescources section on this page.
