Construction has begun on the roadway that will connect Northwest 109th Avenue with Doral Boulevard.

The Doral City Council, along with Miami-Dade County Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz, participated in a groundbreaking ceremony on June 1, celebrating the connection that will give almost 900 households and several businesses an alternative to heavily congested Northwest 107th Avenue.

It’s expected to be ready in four months.

The new road connection will have new sidewalks, shared bicycle lanes and lighting. Doral spokeswoman Maggie Santos said the city hopes it will encourage residents to “leave your car at home.”

“This section of road is small but it represents big things,” Mayor Luigi Boria said in a statement. “As part of our traffic solution triangle, we are aggressively connecting our roads to provide alternative routes and to better distribute traffic.”

Santos added that “to take full advantage of this project, the city is offering expedited processing of plans and permits for any of the adjacent developments to build a second entrance from 109th Avenue, further increasing the mobility of those residents.”
