The I-395/SR 836/I-95 Project is a partnership between the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX), with construction limits on State Road (SR) 836 beginning at NW 17 Avenue and continuing through the SR 836/I-395/I-95 (Midtown) Interchange to the MacArthur Causeway Bridge. The limits on I-95 are from NW 8 Street to NW 29 Street. Construction is expected to be completed in the fall of 2024 at a cost of $818 million.
BCC is providing support services on behalf of FDOT for the concept development, procurement, and design phases of this project. BCC prepared the preliminary geometric design for the reconstruction of the entire I-395 corridor, from the original terminus at the west side of the I-95/Midtown Interchange (I-95/SR 836/I-395) to the original corridor terminus at the West Channel Bridges of US 41/MacArthur Causeway. This project was developed to improve mainline operations along I-395, reduce congestion on the surface streets below and provide enhanced access to the Performing Arts Center and surrounding areas of downtown Miami. BCC is also reviewing on behalf of the Department the roadway, traffic control, signing and pavement marking, and signalization plan components as submitted by the Designers.

The I-395 project will define the Miami skyline and accentuate the image of the “Magic City” for generations to come. This iconic project will reconnect communities that were once divided by an outdated elevated roadway, creating a safer environment for pedestrian and vehicular traffic solving many of the mobility challenges within a congested downtown area. The project will completely reconstruct the existing interstate and create a signature bridge that will span 1,025 feet over NE 2nd Avenue and State Road (SR) 5/Biscayne Boulevard redefining the Miami skyline with its six sweeping arches. The project will add additional capacity to I-395 with a total of three through lanes in each direction and provide separate connector ramps for traffic to and from I-95.
