Miami-Dade County Projects

Synchronization of Lights

The County's new Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) is a state-of-the-art, distributed traffic signal monitor and control system that is the most important tool at the staff's disposal to accomplish that goal. The ATMS helps to assure that optimum traffic signal operations are in place at all locations and all times-of-day. It also monitors the performance of the signals and automatically notifies appropriate staff when a traffic signal malfunctions, enabling staff to respond with maximum efficiency and effectiveness.

Express Lane

Express is an innovative, lower-cost alternative to traditional highway construction that offers a variety of options for avoiding congestion. A variable-priced toll that adjusts to congestion levels encourages travel in less heavily traveled periods. It also offers a toll-free option for those who choose to travel in registered carpools. 

Both of these measures reduce the number of cars on the road during the peak travel periods. Toll-free travel for motorcycles and registered hybrid vehicles encourages more environmentally conscious options. And, more reliable travel speeds enhance transit service between Broward and Miami-Dade counties, which will offer more comfortable, high-quality hybrid buses.

Express Lane Buses

Express bus riders on I-95 accounted for 18% of travelers in the HOV lane during peak periods. 95 Express makes Miami-Dade and Broward County transit services more reliable for their users. New 95 ExpressBus Rapid Transit routes have been introduced. These routes increase frequency of service.  On these new routes, bus service across the county line is seamless, eliminating the need for transfers at the Golden Glades Park-n-Ride. This results in improved travel conditions for transit users.

For transit information call 305-770-3131 (Miami-Dade Transit), or 954-357-8400 (Broward County Transit)

Airport Connection to Metrorail

The Orange Line Metrorail Extension Project, a 2.4-mile extension of Metrorail, runs from the Earlington Heights station to the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC) which is now under construction next to Miami International Airport (MIA).

Local residents headed out-of-town can now leave behind all the traffic and parking hassles that come with driving to the airport. And out-of-towners at the airport have the best of Miami-Dade County’s attractions and activities in easy, affordable reach.
