Projects: Roadway Improvements
NW 14th Street Reconstruction
The reconstruction of NW 14th Street was done to alleviate flooding and drainage problems and improve the flow of traffic along this widely traveled roadway.
Construction on this roadway began on July 8, 2003 to ensure safe and efficient access to the area for businesses and the traveling public while other components of the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC) are under construction. NW 14th Street was open for traffic on March 12, 2004. Click here to view images of the ribbon cutting event.
The project was on NW 14th Street, stretching between NW 34th Avenue and NW 42nd Court. The scope of work included:
- Reconstruction, milling and resurfacing of NW 14 Street between NW 34th Avenue and NW 42nd Court on a one mile stretch of roadway paralleling State Road 836
- Drainage, sidewalk and curb and gutter construction
- Pump station at NW 37th Avenue
- Signalization improvements at NW 14th Street intersections with Le Jeune Road and NW 37th Avenue
- Lighting improvements along NW 14th Street
- Intelligent Transportation System underground construction along NW 14th Street
- Landscaping along NW 14 Street
During heavy rains, this road was known to have severe flooding issues. Milling and resurfacing, as well as drainage improvements, has alleviated those conditions along this very congested corridor and improved traffic flow in the area.
