Additional Road Construction Projects Will Affect Miller School Campus
Two additional road construction projects that will affect both car and pedestrian traffic on the Miller School campus are beginning this week.
The first project, scheduled to continue for six weeks, has begun near the Mailman Center for Child Development, the Debbie School and University of Miami Hospital and Clinics. Northwest 11th Court, which runs one way from north to south just east of those three buildings, will be temporarily narrowed to allow for trenching sections of the road as part of an electrical project tying the Mailman Center into the emergency power system.
This project will likely impede vehicle traffic in the area. Please plan ahead and seek an alternate route. Pay particular attention to the student loading zone in front of the Debbie School. The area also sees considerable foot traffic, including many users of the Civic Center Metrorail Station. Know that there will be times when pedestrians will be re-routed around the work zone. Temporary signs will be placed in the area to help pedestrians find their way.
See map for additional location information.
The second project, scheduled from 9 p.m. tonight, March 18, to 5:30 a.m. tomorrow, March 19, is a temporary closure of the exit ramp from eastbound SR 836 to NW 17th Avenue. During that closure, drivers wishing to travel on NW 17th Avenue should exit at NW 27th Avenue southbound and turn right. Continue south on NW 27th Avenue and turn left at NW 7th Street. Continue east on NW 7th Street to access NW 17th Avenue.
When the ramp reopens, it will be in a new location about 1,000 feet before the current exit ramp. Drivers should look for message boards along the roadway indicating the new exit ramp location.
