Lane closures and construction alerts in Miami


Written by on January 11, 2019

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has announced lane closures related to the I-395/SR 836/I-95 Design-Build Project in the City of Miami. Monday, Jan. 14, through Friday, Jan. 18, three lanes on southbound I-95 from Northwest 29th Street to Northwest 17th Street will be closed nightly. Two lanes will be closed between 9 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. and the third lane will be closed from 10 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. On Friday night the three lanes will be closed between 11 p.m. and 11 a.m.

The project contractor has mobilized equipment to test site 5B (north of I-395, near Northeast Second Avenue and Northeast First Avenue) and is expected to begin driving test piles into the ground on Tuesday, Jan. 15 (Jan. 16 is an alternate date).

The test pile program is designed to gather data to enable the design engineers to further develop the foundation plans for the I-395 “signature bridge.” The test pile operations will produce noise and vibration at times, and a monitoring program aims to ensure that levels remain within acceptable limits, says FDOT.

This schedule may change due to bad weather or other unforeseen conditions.

The work is part of the I-395/SR 836/I-95 Design-Build Project that will reconstruct the I-395 corridor from the SR 836/I-395/I-95 (Midtown) Interchange to the MacArthur Causeway Bridge, including the construction of a signature bridge over Northeast Second Avenue and Biscayne Boulevard; double-deck SR 836 from west of Northwest 17th Avenue to the Midtown Interchange, and the replacement of the concrete pavement on I-95 from Northwest Eighth to 29th streets.
