The construction project is set to reconstruct the I-395 corridor from the SR 836/I-395/I-95 (Midtown) Interchange to the MacArthur Causeway Bridge. Changes include the construction of a signature bridge over NE 2 Avenue and Biscayne Boulevard, double-deck SR 836 from west of NW 17 Avenue to the Midtown Interchange, and the replacement of the concrete pavement on I-95 from NW 8 Street to NW 29 Street.
