Dolphin Station Park and Ride Transit Facility
Description : MDX in partnership with Miami-Dade Transit (MDT) and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has completed a Project Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) to evaluate a park-and-ride/terminal facility on approximately 15 acres of publicly owned land north of NW 12th Street, just west of the Florida’s Turnpike (HEFT). The transit facility will support MDT’s SR 836/Dolphin Expressway Express Bus Service, provide a terminus or stop for several local bus routes serving the Dolphin Mall and the cities of Sweetwater and Doral, as well as serving a potential future east-west commuter rail service on the CSX line. Miami-Dade County has asked MDX to fast track the planning, design and construction of the Dolphin Station. FDOT will fund 100% of the planning and design development, and share the construction cost with MDT. Miami-Dade District 12 Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz has been instrumental in advancing this effort. The facility will be operated and maintained by MDT.
Project Status : The project is currently advertised as a design/build project. It is estimated that the facility will open in 2017.
