Roadwork this week will hamper commuter traffic on State Roads 836 and 826, as well as on Florida’s Turnpike and several avenues and streets in Miami-Dade County.
Several ramps along State Road 836 will close intermittently for repaving through Thursday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. every night. They include those at the intersections of Northwest 17th, 27th, 37th, 42nd, 45th, 57th and 107th avenues, and the Homestead Extension to the Turnpike.
On the Turnpike, one or two northbound or southbound lanes may be closed nightly at various locations between Southwest 216th and 184th streets between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. through Thursday. The work involves the widening of the Turnpike and construction of toll express lanes.
In Pinecrest, construction will take place along Southwest 67th Avenue/Ludlam Road from Kendall Drive to Southwest 90th Street starting next Monday. The work will last until at least Feb. 5. Construction will occur at night between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. and during the day between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Restrictions include closure of a northbound lane Feb. 1 for four days along Southwest 67th Avenue approximately 350 feet south of the Kendall Drive intersection. The work is related to a Miami-Dade Water and Sewer project.
Other roadwork that began Monday reduced southbound State Road 826 between Kendall Drive and South Dixie Highway to one lane for bridge repair. This continuous lane reduction will remain in place for approximately two months.
Workers this week began a roadway project along Northwest 167th Street from west of Northwest Second Avenue to Northwest First Avenue in North Miami Beach. The project will cost an estimated $1.48 million and last approximately seven months. It includes repaving and restriping, updating traffic signals and upgrading pedestrian ramps. Another project that began this week involves work along 826 from South Dixie Highway to north of Southwest 72nd Street. The project will cost an estimated $3.84 million and last approximately seven months. It includes repaving and restriping, installing signage and upgrading pedestrian ramps.
