Commuters this week will encounter travel restrictions on Krome Avenue, West Flagler Street, the Homestead Extension of Florida’s Turnpike and State Road 826.
Workers closed lanes at the intersection of Krome Avenue and Tamiami Trail (Southwest Eighth Street) earlier this week in connection with a traffic pattern shift, part of ongoing work to widen Krome. Workers removed the concrete median on Tamiami Trail, restriped the intersection, adjusted traffic signals and installed plastic poles between travel lanes. The work is part of the Krome Avenue widening project, which began in February.
Workers closed eastbound lanes on West Flagler Street earlier this week from Southwest 79th Avenue to Southwest 77th Court in order to repave the roadway.
On Southwest 211th Street/Cutler Ridge Boulevard, one eastbound or westbound lane will be closed nightly between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. through Thursday, and between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. through Friday for widening work on the Turnpike.
One or two Turnpike lanes in each direction between Southwest 104th Street (Killian Parkway) and Southwest 184th Street (Eureka Drive) may be closed nightly between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. through Thursday, and a third lane in either direction may be closed between11 p.m. and 5 a.m., if needed.
All travel lanes on westbound and eastbound Northwest 12th Street between Milam Dairy Road (Northwest 72nd Avenue) and Northwest 82nd Avenue will be closed through Thursday between 10 p.m. and 5:30 a.m.nightly. The closure will allow workers to remove an existing bridge over the roadway.
Two northbound lanes will be closed through Thursday from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. nightly on State Road 826 from Northwest 25th to 74th streets. Also, the Northwest 77th Avenue frontage road on the west side of 826 between Northwest 92 and 95th streets in Hialeah Gardens will remain closed until sometime in October. Workers will be adding toll express lanes on 826 and doing drainage work along the Northwest 77th Avenue frontage road.
