MDX SR 836 Interchange Improvements at 87th Avenue
Description : MDX has begun construction of the SR 836/Dolphin Expressway Interchange Improvements at NW 87th Avenue in the Doral/Fontainbleau area. The project will complete system-to-system connections between SR 836 and the Palmetto Expressway and provide increased capacity to meet future traffic needs along SR 836. The main purpose of the project is to improve traffic operations and safety of the SR 836 and NW 87th Avenue Interchange by reconstructing the entrance and exit ramps and widening NW 12th Street between NW 87th and NW 82nd Avenues. A significant improvement will be the addition of a new flyover entrance ramp that will provide a direct connection from westbound NW 12th Street to westbound SR 836. The new entrance ramp will substantially reduce congestion at the intersection of NW 87th Avenue and NW 12th Street. The project also includes the construction of sound barriers, signing and pavement markings, lighting, drainage, utility coordination, Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) infrastructure and landscaping.
Project Status : Throughout 2017 the construction of the SR 836/Dolphin Expressway interchange at NW 87th Avenue continued as scheduled. Several improvements are expected to open in early 2018 including a new bridge and exit ramp from eastbound SR 836 providing direct access to SR 826/Palmetto Expressway. New drainage and a new sidewalk construction along NW 12th Street will also be completed in early 2018. Construction of the new flyover ramp to westbound SR 836 from NW 12th Street is now underway and the structure is beginning to take shape.
