FDOT intersection enhancement project to begin the week of February 27

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has rescheduled the start date of the intersection enhancement project to begin the week of February 27, 2017. The project limits extend along SR 916/NW 135 Street and NW 17 Avenue in Miami-Dade County. The project will cost an estimated $177,943. The work will take approximately four months to be completed. The project includes the following:
  • Removing and installing two new traffic signals
  • Installing new reflective borders on signal heads
  • Installing an additional signal head on the southbound approach of the intersection
  • Installing a “Next Signal NW 135 St.” roadway sign on the southbound approach of the intersection
  • Reconstructing pedestrian sidewalks
  • Installing new pedestrian signal
To build this project safely, it will be necessary to periodically close lanes. Construction will be done in stages to minimize impacts to the public during special events and peak periods of traffic. The department will make sure traffic continues to flow safely through the work zones.

Please note that this schedule may change due to bad weather or other unexpected conditions. For more information, please call FDOT’s Public Information Office at 305-470-5349 or Construction Public Information Specialist Sandra Bello at 305-510-0827 or go to the website at
Drivers are encouraged to call 511 before they travel or log on to to get real-time traffic and lane closure information. FDOT would like to remind drivers that wearing a safety belt is the single most effective way to protect people and reduce fatalities in motor vehicle crashes. Please drive cautiously in construction zones.
