South Dixie Highway


South Dixie Highway

South Dixie Highway is the name given to a stretch of U.S. Route 1 south of downtown Miami, Florida. It is an off-street grid main thoroughfare, as it intersects both avenues and streets on the grid plan.

It becomes South Dixie Highway where the southern terminus of Interstate 95 merges onto U.S. Route 1, just south of downtown Miami. It continues in a southwest direction through the city of Miami until it crosses Southwest 38th Avenue (Brooker Street) where it enters the city of Coral Gables.

It continues southwest through Coral Gables until it crosses Red Road (Southwest 57th Avenue) where it enters the city of South Miami.

It continues southwest through South Miami until it crosses Southwest 80th Street where it enters unincorporated Miami-Dade County. [http://www.cityofsouthmiami.net/sm_map.pdf South Miami city map]

It continues a short distance through unincorporated Miami-Dade County until it crosses Snapper Creek (Canal C-2), where it is also known as Pinecrest Parkway, and serves as a boundary for the village of Pinecrest to the southeast and unincorporated Dadeland and Kendall.

It continues south-southwest, dividing Pinecrest and Kendall until it crosses Southwest 136th Street (Howard Drive) where it goes through the communities of Howard, Rockdale, Perrine and borders the incorporated town of Cutler Bay (formerly Cutler Ridge) between Southwest 184th Street and Southwest 186th Street.

It enters Cutler Bay at Southwest 186th Street and continues southwest through Cutler Bay until it exits at Southwest 112th Avenue (Allapattah Road). [http://www.cutlerbay.net/images/CBMap2.jpgMap of Cutler Bay]

It continues southwest through the communities of Goulds, Princeton, Naranja, Modello and Leisure City until it enters the city of Homestead at Southwest 304th Street (Kings Highway). [http://www.cityofhomestead.com/pdf/maps/flum.pdf Land Use Map of Homestead]

It continues southwest through Homestead and curves nearly due south where it exits Homestead and enters Florida City at Southwest 328th Street.

It continues south through Florida City. Upon exiting into unincorporated Miami-Dade County, it continues south and after crossing Southwest 424th Street is again only U.S. Route 1, no longer South Dixie Highway.
