The commute this week will be impeded by road work on expressways like State Roads 826 and 836 as well as the Homestead Extension of Florida's Turnpike and some major surface roads like Flagler Street.
On West Flagler, lane restrictions will begin soon now that workers have begun an $11.1 million roadway project along the roadway from 14th Avenue to Second Avenue in Miami. This is the second of four projects on West Flagler Street from 27th Avenue to Second Avenue. The work will last approximately two years and include roadway reconstruction, installation of new lighting, traffic signals and pavement markings as well as a bicycle lane — among other tasks.
Meanwhile, the southbound 826/Palmetto Expressway will be closed nightly at SW 88th Street/Kendall Drive through Thursday between 10 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. each day for bridge repair.
On 836, the Milam Dairy Road entrance ramp to the eastbound expressway will be closed through Friday between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. for paving. Similarly, the eastbound 836 collector road to the eastbound mainline lanes of the expressway will be closed at the Northwest 72nd Avenue/Milam Dairy Road ramp through Friday between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.
On the Turnpike, up to two lanes in either direction between Southwest 216th Street and Eureka Drive may be closed nightly from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Thursday for widening and construction of express lanes. Also on the Turnpike and for the same purpose, one lane in either direction between Southwest 184th Street/Eureka Drive and SW 104th Street/Killian Parkway may be closed from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Thursday. If necessary, two lanes in each direction may be closed nightly from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Also, one lane in each direction between Killian Parkway and Kendall Drive may be closed nightly from 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Thursday for the same project of widening and express lane work. A second lane may close at 10:30 p.m., also to reopen at 5 a.m.
