Northern Collins Avenue construction to stall traffic east of Lehman Causeway

Construction along Collins Avenue from south of Bayview Drive to the William Lehman Causeway will be one of the roadway projects hampering the commute this week in Miami-Dade County.

The $4.4-million project, which will take roughly 13 months to complete, includes repaving, restriping and upgrading of pedestrian ramps and traffic signals.

Another significant project will close lanes for water-main work on North Miami Avenue southbound from Northwest 25th to 27th streets. A similar closure will take place next week also on North Miami Avenue southbound, this time from Northwest 34th to 36th streets. Closures involve all southbound lanes on North Miami Avenue each time.

On Interstate 95, meanwhile, all northbound and southbound express lanes will be closed nightly through Thursday from 9 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. from the Golden Glades Interchange to State Road 112 (the Airport Expressway).

Also on I-95, two or three northbound general-purpose lanes will be closed nightly through Thursday from Northwest 29th to 50th streets from 9 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.

Similarly, one southbound I-95 general purpose lane from Northwest 83 to 95th streets will be closed between 11 p.m. and 11 a.m. through Thursday. Also, two northbound I-95 general purpose lanes from Northwest 125th to 135th streets will be closed nightly through Thursday from 9 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.

The closures are part of the I-95 project to build five emergency stopping sites on express lanes from Northwest 62nd to 131st streets, and to replace the concrete pavement from Northwest 29th to 79th streets.

On State Road 836 (the Dolphin Expressway), the entrance from northbound 42nd Avenue/LeJeune Road will be closed for reconstruction until August.

Also on 836, the entrance ramp from northbound Northwest 87th Avenue will be intermittently closed for bridge work through Thursday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night and again on Friday from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Similarly, the westbound 836 exit ramp to southbound Northwest 87th Avenue will be intermittently closed for bridge work, signal work and beam installation through Thursday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Also on 836, the westbound exit ramp to Northwest 37th Avenue will be closed for drainage work on through Thursday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night and again on Friday from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.

The entrance ramp to westbound 836 from northbound Northwest 27th Avenue will be intermittently closed for bridge demolition through Thursday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night and again on Friday from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.

The entrance ramp to eastbound 836 from northbound and southbound Northwest 27th Avenue will be closed for bridge demolition on through Thursday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night and again on Friday from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.

The eastbound 836 exit ramp to northbound and southbound Northwest 27th Avenue will be similarly closed for bridge demolition through Thursday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night and again on Friday from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.

The westbound 836 exit ramp to northbound and southbound Northwest 27th Avenue also will be intermittently closed for earthwork, lighting installation and bridge demolition through Thursday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night and again on Friday from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Meanwhile on the Homestead Extension of Florida's Turnpike, nightly closures will take place between Campbell Drive and Biscayne Drive/Southwest 288th Street for interchange reconstruction at Campbell Drive.

Northbound or southbound lanes will be closed between Campbell Drive and south of Biscayne Drive from 9 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. the next day through Thursday.

On other Turnpike stretches, workers widening the expressway and building express lanes will close lanes nightly at various locations through Thursday.

Closures include one southbound lane between Biscayne Drive and Southwest 216th Street from 9 p.m. to 530 a.m. the next day; northbound or southbound lanes between Eureka Drive and Killian Parkway from 9.m. to5 a.m.; northbound or southbound lanes between Killian Parkway and Sunset Drive between 9:30 p.m. and 5 a.m. the next day; northbound and southbound between Sunset Drive and Bird Road from 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. the next day; northbound and southbound lanes between Bird Road and 836 from 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m.
