NEW WATER MAIN ALONG MIRACLE MILE FROM SW 37 TO 42 AVENUES

The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) has embarked on a capital improvement project that will make necessary upgrades to the water and sewer infrastructure. WASD is installing a new 16-inch Water Main along Miracle Mile (on the north side of the median), from SW 37 to 42 Avenues.

Phase 2 of the project is currently underway (started Tuesday, January

17th with a projected completion date of May 2017). The construction work will occur between 10:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m., Sunday to Thursday only. The work will require phased roadway closures of both lanes on the north side of Miracle Mile during the construction times at night.  Lanes will reopen to traffic by 10:00 a.m. every morning.  The site will be cleared of construction equipment as the street reopens each  morning.  Block-by-block  construction  work  will  begin  on  LeJeune  Road,  progressing  toward Douglas Road.
