MIA Perimeter Road detour begins April 3

Traffic permanently re-routed around expanded security perimeter

To further strengthen the security perimeter around Miami International Airport, the Miami-Dade Aviation Department (MDAD) will permanently re-direct unauthorized traffic at the airport’s Perimeter Road entrance and exit to alternate routes beginning Tuesday, April 3, at 10 a.m.

Eastbound Perimeter Road drivers destined for MIA will be detoured to N.W. 42nd Court, where they can then enter the airport via LeJeune Road (N.W. 42nd Avenue) or via N.W. 20th Street. Drivers exiting the airport via N.W. 20th Street will also be diverted to N.W. 42nd Court, where they can connect to Perimeter Road via N.W. 43rd Place, N.W. 13th Street and N.W. 45th Avenue (see the attached map).

MDAD employee shuttle buses and MIA fuel farm traffic may still access Perimeter Road in both directions via newly installed guard gates.
