(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 
Miami-Dade Transit is currently constructing the AirportLink. The following ramp closure is necessary in order to perform this activity. Look for directional signs on the road.

FULL 24-HOUR CLOSURE OF THE NW 27 AVENUE ENTRANCE RAMP TO WESTBOUND SR 112/AIRPORT EXPRESSWAY 
Beginning on Monday, September 12, 2011 at 5:00 a.m. and ending Monday, September 26, 2011 at 11:00 p.m., the NW 27 Avenue entrance ramp to westbound SR 112 will be closed 24 hours a day. This closure is necessary to reconstruct NW 41 Street and repave the entrance ramp.

Suggested alternate routes:

  • NW 27 Avenue Northbound Traffic: Motorists travelling north on NW 27 Avenue  will be directed to turn east on NW 46 Street and south on  NW 22 Avenue to access the entrance ramp to westbound SR 112 at NW 22 Avenue.
  • NW 27 Avenue Southbound Traffic: Motorists travelling south on NW 27 Avenue will be directed to turn east on NW 36 Street and north on NW 22 Avenue to access the entrance ramp to  westbound SR 112 at NW 22 Avenue.

The AirportLink project is a 2.4-mile elevated Metrorail extension from the existing Earlington Heights Metrorail Station to the MIC next to Miami International Airport. This vital project will provide a reliable Metrorail connection to the airport for the millions of residents, visitors and employees who travel to and from MIA every year. The project also will provide a boost to the local economy by creating jobs, facilitating work-related travel and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
