Multiple ramp and lane closures will hinder the flow of traffic this week on some expressways including 836, 874 and Florida’s Turnpike as well as some surface roads such as West Flagler Street.
On State Road 836, the Dolphin Expressway, many ramps at various interchanges will be closed for striping through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5:30 a.m. each day and again from 11 p.m. Friday to 5:30 a.m. Saturday. Among the closures: entrance ramps to eastbound 836 from northbound and southbound NW 12th Avenue; entrance ramps to westbound 836 from northbound and southbound NW 27th Avenue; the eastbound 836 exit ramps to northbound and southbound NW 27th Avenue; the entrance ramp to eastbound 836 from northbound NW 57th Avenue; and the westbound 836 exit ramp to southbound NW 57th Avenue.
Meanwhile, at 10 p.m. Friday the northbound access ramp to the Snapper Creek service plaza on the Homestead Extension of Florida’s Turnpike in south Miami-Dade will be permanently closed — but the plaza will remain open. Northbound motorists will need to exit at SW 120th Street (Exit 19) to get to service plaza businesses and the Florida Highway Patrol Troop K Building.
On State Road 874, the Don Shula Expressway, one or two lanes in either direction between Killian Parkway and the Turnpike interchange may be closed nightly between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. through Thursday as part of a Turnpike widening and express lane project.
On West Flagler Street, all eastbound travel lanes between NW 78th Avenue and NW 76th Avenue have been shifted to the north side of the roadway for road work. The new traffic pattern is expected to remain in place for about two months.
