The North Corridor is one of the six corridors highlighted in the County’s Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit Program. Once completed it would provide residents a seamless transit experience by extending the County’s existing Metrorail system along NW 27 Avenue from the Martin Luther King Station to County Line.

- The total project investment is currently estimated at $1.9B and will be funded in part by Miami-Dade County and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). Furthermore, Miami-Dade County will aggressively pursue federal opportunities to support the project.
- Once fully developed, the North Corridor project will connect riders to many of the County’s anchor institutions including Miami-Dade College and the Hard Rock Stadium.
- On Dec. 6, 2018, the Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) Governing Board selected an elevated fixed guideway transit system as the Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) for the North Corridor.
- On Oct. 21, 2019, the TPO Governing Board refined the LPA to select Elevated Heavy Rail as the preferred transit technology
- On Nov. 15, 2022, the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approved Resolution R-1139-22 directing the County Mayor or designee to take all actions necessary to accelerate the implementation of the North Corridor as an elevated fixed guideway solution per the TPO’s adopted Locally Preferred Alternative and urging the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to complete the National Environmental Policy Act process.
The SMART Program represents a vision for our region that is both strategic and far-reaching, creating a system of multiple transportation options by leveraging existing infrastructure, and integrating technology at the highest levels. The program is comprehensive, proactive and supports the future population and employment growth.
We connect people to places by providing a high-quality, safe, reliable, clean, and efficient mass transit system that meets the travel needs of the County's growing population and we provide vital transportation infrastructure systems and services.
Our mass transit system includes:
We provide all traffic signals countywide, along with all traffic control signs, street signage and pavement markings and all County and State-owned street lights. We build, operate and maintain movable and fixed bridges, swales, roadway surface repairs, guardrails, and along County road rights-of-way. We also operate and maintain the Rickenbacker and Venetian Causeways.
We manage the County Stormwater Utility for flood and water quality protection and maintain the secondary canal system.
Permits for all work within rights-of-way and code enforcement of unpermitted work is also handled by our Public Works division.
