GGI Project Starts Construction

Back to all News & Events
GGI Project Construction Site

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise have started construction of the GGI Project, in northwest Miami-Dade County. As a larger project, it will enhance regional mobility by revitalizing this major transportation interchange, which includes connections to five essential roadway systems in the South Florida area: State Road (SR) 9A/I-95, SR 826/Palmetto Expressway, SR 91/Florida’s Turnpike, SR 9 and SR 7/US 441/NW 7 Avenue. Construction is scheduled through fall 2031, and the current project cost is $908 million.

The GGI Project is part of the Moving Florida Forward Infrastructure Initiative, which focuses on critical improvements to ensure that transportation infrastructure can meet the demands of current and future residents and visitors, including investments in major interstates and arterial roadways to ensure people and goods can move safely throughout the state.

Project benefits include constructing 32 new bridges to enhance regional mobility and ease access between major corridors, updating lighting, improving emergency access and incident response times via new lanes and ramps, installing more than 50,000 feet of new drainage pipe, updating facilities for improved longevity, improving connections to the Golden Glades Multimodal Transportation Facility, installing wrong-way vehicle detection systems at various locations, installing 72 traffic monitoring cameras, creating employment opportunities during construction and enhancing economic activity.

To build this project safely, it will be necessary to close travel lanes, sidewalks and establish detours at times. Work will be done in stages to minimize construction-related impacts. Drivers might experience delays traveling through the area and should seek alternate routes if possible.

Please note that this schedule may change due to bad weather or other unexpected conditions.
