Constructing the Infrastructure of Florida

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) manages and oversees dozens of state road and bridge construction projects on the state highway system within Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. These projects range from minor intersection upgrades that will enhance traffic flow, to major multi-million dollar programs such as the State Road (SR) 826/ Palmetto Expressway Expansion Program and the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC), which offer significant benefits to the movement of people and goods in their district.

Some of the Current Projects:
