  • Where is the project located?

    The GGI is located in northeastern Miami-Dade County and is of regional importance providing connectivity to five major facilities including State Road (SR) 9A/I-95, SR 826/Palmetto Expressway, Florida’s Turnpike, SR 9 and SR 7/US 441. 

  • Why is this project needed?

    The primary purpose of this project is to provide a system-to-system connection for eastbound SR 826/Palmetto Expressway to northbound SR 9A/I-95 in order to increase mobility and reduce travel delay at the interchange. The improvements represent a master plan to enhance safety and mobility within the GGI. The interchange currently experiences heavy congestion, carrying more than 400,000 vehicles each day. By the year 2040, the traffic within the interchange is expected to increase by about 50 percent. Congestion will only get worse if no improvements are made.
