Special traffic advisory on construction of Miami-Dade Transit's Airportlink Metrorail extension


(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 
Miami-Dade Transit is currently constructing the AirportLink. The following lane closure is necessary to complete the work. Look for directional signs on the road.

LANE CLOSURE ON SR 112/AIRPORT EXPRESSWAY WESTBOUND
On Saturday, January 21, 2012, the outside lane on SR 112 westbound, between NW 27 Avenue and LeJeune Road, will be closed from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Two westbound lanes of traffic will remain open.

The above information is subject to change if the contractor's schedule is altered due to unforeseen circumstances.  For more information, please refer to the contact name listed above.

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.
