New construction project to snarl downtown Miami roads for nearly a year

Roadwork in downtown Miami beginning Wednesday will throw another wrench into the daily commute.

The project, estimated to cost $3.49 million and end in June 2018, will affect Southeast Second Avenue between Southeast Second and Fourth streets, and the section of Biscayne Boulevard between Southeast Third Avenue and Southeast Second Street.

Work includes repaving the roads, updating the storm water drainage system along Biscayne Boulevard, extending a bike lane and updating the pedestrian curb ramps, push buttons and signals.

Roadwork will take place between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. At least one lane of traffic will remain open.
