SR-997 / Krome Avenue Reconstruction


This project was a complete reconstruction of SR-997 / Krome Avenue / S.W. 177th Avenue from S.W. 232nd Street (MP 7.519) to just south of S.W. 184th Street/Eureka Drive (MP 10.536).

Krome Avenue is a critical travel, freight, evacuation, and recovery route as well as part of the Florida Intrastate Highway System (FIHS) and Florida Strategic Intermodal System (SIS). The project consisted of reconstructing the existing 2-lane undivided section to be a 4-lane divided section. Extensive coordination with the adjacent projects was required. The proposed drainage system is comprised of an open system of swales and French drains.
