Miami-Dade County Project: Island Blvd and N.E. 183 St

Full Project Description for Island Boulevard and N.E. 183 Street

The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) began their improvement construction project in Aventura in April 2021, to replace existing wastewater lines along Island Boulevard and N.E. 183 Street from Biscayne Boulevard to Williams Island.

To enhance the reliability of the wastewater system, the Department is upgrading the water and sewer infrastructure by replacing existing wastewater lines with new lines. Most of the construction work occurs during the weekdays. There may be some night and weekend work when necessary. The project is expected to be completed by March of 2022.
