Driving in Miami is an adventure. In this series we will drive around Miami showing its main streets, avenues, and expressways. This episode is all about the Turnpike, between exit 23 (Bird Rd) and exit 11 (216th St).
New construction work on the Turnpike
What are they building there? Maybe a new bridge and extra lanes?
New entrance ramp to SB Turnpike from Dolphin Expressway for Miami drivers
Miami drivers have a now new entrance ramp (or Thru Lanes Entrance as labeled on the signs) from the SR-36 Dolphin Expressway to the Florida Turnpike. But beware, as access to SW 8 Street is not available from this new ramp, which ends shortly before reaching Exit 23 (Bird Rd).
