Hurricane Irma

As we continue our recovery and cleanup efforts, please visit the Emergency website for the latest information on openings and closings in Miami-Dade County.

Sidewalk Accessibility

Accessible sidewalks provide curb cuts that people with disabilities can use to safely transition from a roadway to a curbed sidewalk.

Standards adopted by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) have been enforced on all County roadways, bridges and bike paths, including those managed by the private sector.

If a sidewalk is damaged or inaccessible, submit a service request to 311 Direct or call 311 to report it. All complaints are investigated within one to five days.

Sidewalk Transition Plan

To make sidewalks accessible, the County developed the Sidewalk Transition Plan. Under the plan, the County identified physical obstacles in need of removal and prioritized repairs.
