Installation of landscaping between SW 232 Street and SW 136 Street was completed in January 2022. This section of the project is currently in the establishment period. 

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has three landscape projects underway along SR 997/Krome Avenue in western Miami-Dade County.

  • The section between SW 232 Street and SW 136 Street started in June 2021 and is in the establishment phase.
  • The section between SW 136 Street and SW 88 Street started in September 2021 and is in the installation phase.
  • The section between SW 296 Street and SW 232 Street started in April 2022 and is in the installation phase. 

Tree installation for each segment is scheduled for several months. The remainder of the project schedule is for the establishment phase to allow the new landscape material to settle.
