Through its capital improvements program, DTPW seeks to make infrastructure investments that improve mobility, ensure public health and safety, while protecting and enhancing the environment. In an effort to improve roadway capacity and operations in the area, a series of enhancements to four intersections along Old Cutler are being made, specifically: SW 184 Street, SW 152 Street, SW 136 Street, and SW 67 Avenue. These improvements include the creation of roundabouts with sidewalks, curbs and gutters, storm drainage systems, irrigation, pavement markings, signage, and roadway lighting.
The objective of the project is to provide safety and operational improvements to help traffic flow smoothly at the subject intersections and along the entire roadway network of Old Cutler Road. Based on the intersection level of service and roadway network analysis conducted by the Village of Palmetto Bay in 2019, it was determined that these improvements would result in better operating performance for Old Cutler Road.
