The Central Boulevard Widening Realignment and Service Loop Project provides improvements to the entrance and exit for the Miami International Airport (MIA). The improvements will separate commercial and passenger traffic with the introduction of service roads to accommodate commercial vehicles. The Project also reduces congestion and improves the vehicular traffic of the airport.
Scope of Work
- New bridges
- Roadway reconstruction including the perimeter road
- Construction of north and south service access roads for commercial traffic
- Reconfiguration of the existing Central Boulevard to go over the perimeter road
- Improvements to drainage, pavement markings, lighting, signalization, utilities, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) walls, and landscaping
- Airport “way-finding” signage including Digital Message Sign (DMS)
- NW 42nd Court extension over the Tamiami Canal, which will provide further connections to local traffic
Central Boulevard is a vital connection between the Miami International Airport, SR 836/ Dolphin Expressway and SR 112/ Airport Expressway. The Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX) and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) are providing the resources for this project.
