According to Miami Springs Mayor, FDOT is looking at 3 options as they conclude the design phase of their project for NW 36th Street.  Here are the three options Mayor Mitchell shared during Monday’s City Council Meeting.

  1. No Build
  2. Freight and transit lanes
  3. 36th Street Expansion
    • SR112 Overpass Extension / Connection to SR826
    • Expanding Ground Lanes

Mayor Mitchell stressed that there will be new public meetings in January at the Holiday Inn hotel.

You can see the most extreme plans in the link below:

FDOT Plan: Add 36 St Elevated Expressway

NOTE:  This is NOT like the overpass at NW 25th Street.  The 25th Street overpass does not connect two highways.  The 25th Street overpass is placed in a warehouse district.

Make no mistake.  The proposed project is an expressway not like the 25th Street overpass.  It’s a highway connection that connects State Road 112 and the Palmetto Expressway.

Councilman Victor Vazquez added that underneath the 25th Street overpass, “you can see how dirty it is…”

Is this what we want for NW 36th Street?


The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is evaluating approximately nine miles of State Road (SR) 948/ NW 36 Street Corridor as part of the transportation planning efforts to enhance multimodal development in Miami-Dade County. This planning study will result in the development of improvements that will address mobility, operational, social, economic, and safety needs of this diverse corridor.

Study Objectives:

  • Evaluate existing transportation conditions to identify transportation and livability needs of the corridor.
  • Forecast future needs based on expected growth along the corridor.
  • Develop alternative improvements to address existing and future needs of the corridor.
  • Recommend a set of viable solutions that will address the corridor’s needs and implement a collaborative transportation vision.

Public Involvement:

FDOT encourages the public to get involved by providing comments, questions, and suggestions to the Multimodal Corridor Study Team.

There will be several public workshops to share progress updates, information collected and analyzed, and alternatives developed for the study area. The workshops will allow the public to ask questions and share comments on the study. Presentations, and one-on-one meetings will also be held for interested residents, business owners, and stakeholders along the corridor.

Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, or family status.
