Think the government shutdown is a pain? It doesn’t have anything on the ongoing shutdowns of Miami-Dade roads for all sorts of renovation projects.

Various kinds of construction work on the Dolphin Expressway, or State Road 836, will lead to lane and 836 ramp closures, mostly in the late-night and early-morning hours. In some cases, all lanes of the expressway or surrounding roads will be closed.
