There are numerous FDOT construction projects in the pipeline for the next five years that will be impacting our Residents, Employees and CMB Visitors. This page will serve as a communication tool for all our MBNA Members.
We urge our members to BE INVOLVED and STAY INFORMED!
As indicated in the FDOT PROJECT CHART below, there are a total of fourteen (14) FDOT construction projects in the pipeline. Of those, six (6) roadway construction projects will be directly impacting MidBeach and three of those have dates that may potentially conflict.
The MBNA will be working closely with FDOT and CMB Transportation Dept. to make sure the the sequence of these projects are carefully coordinated and that the majority of the lane closures take place at night so that traffic impact is minimized.
2-7-24 Project Update presented by Melissa Rodriguez during the MBNA Meeting: A quick update on the FDOT Collins Avenue Projects. These projects consist of two project limits. The first is a roadway project along Collins Ave from NW 26 St to 44 St and the second will be to perform lighting upgrades along SR A1A/Collins Ave from the 4900 Block to 5800 Block. The project was intended to being in mid-February. However, the utility companies are still performing preliminary work. The staging area for the construction equipment is also still being determined. The contractor will no longer be staging near Collins Avenue and 87 Street. Internally, FDOT is working to determine a new area, however we do not have the location confirmed yet.
Next week, you can anticipate seeing the utility companies continuing to perform work. Over the next couple of weeks, the FDOT contractor may also be on site performing survey work and the environmental protection work, with minimal impact to the public. We will be returning in March to the next MBNA meeting with a PowerPoint presentation that will go over the full traffic plan and lane closure information. At that time, we will be able to have the confirmations and provide more information on the schedule of work. An advisory will be going out to the community prior to any lane closure or major work. We encourage everyone to sign up for the electronic updates and note the Senior Community Outreach Specialists contact information.

FDOT'S "TOWN HALL" MEETING at City Hall on May 18, 2023 It was certainly an eye-opener to learn about the numerous roadway construction projects that are in the pipeline, most of which will be seriously impacting Miami Beach residents, employees and visitors alike.
We thank Senator Shevrin Jones and Commissioner Alex Fernandez for organizing an important "TRANSPORTATION TOWN HALL" with FDOT District 6 Secretary Stacy Miller, FDOT's Director of Transportation Operations Daniel Iglesias, FDOT's Construction Manager Dru Badri, FDOT's Asst. Construction Engineer Andres Berisiartu, and Communications Manager, Tish Burgher.
Thank you to our MBNA President, Anamarie Ferreira de Melo, for doing an excellent job as the Town Hall's Moderator.
