Palmetto Expressway - Section 5 (Miami, FL)

This design-build-finance project is the final and largest section of the 12-part Palmetto Expressway (S.R. 826) Improvement Program executed to alleviate the ever growing congestion along this critical highway. The reconstruction of the SR-826 and SR-836 Interchange, driven by more than 425,000 motorists daily, will enhance safety and reduce congestion. The Community Condotte de Moya Joint Venture was contracted to execute the improvements on this project, which include the reconstruction and widening along both SR-826 and SR-836, the construction of a four-level interchange in all directions, the reconstruction and modifications of the Flagler Street/ SR-826 interchange and the Milam Dairy Road/NW 72 Avenue/S.R. 836 interchanges. There are a total of 47 new bridges consisting of concrete beams, steel girders and precast segmental concrete.  The four segmental bridges will be erected with an overhead gantry while the precasting of the segments is performed at Condotte’s yard in Hialeah, FL. Other key improvements and benefits include new at-grade reconstruction of the adjacent Milam Dairy Road with new entrance/exit ramps to SR836, reconstruction widening and resurfacing of West Flagler Street between SW/NW 76 Avenue and SW/ NW 78 Place, installation of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), installation of new signalization, lighting and landscaping, reconstruction of NW 12 St. beneath SR-826, and new bridges over future NW 7 St. and NW 82 Ave.  The project also includes the installation of a new 48" forcemain, 16" watermain and other utility adjustments.
