SR 112 east
One mile in, drivers along SR 112 (Airport Expressway) east span both SR 948 (NW 36th Street) and the C-15 canal of the South Florida Water Management District. Photo taken 01/23/16.
The elevated metrorail line comes into view as the eastbound viaduct crosses over the westbound mainline. Part of a 2.4-mile extension known as the Orange Line, the metrorail provides a direct transit connection between the existing metrorail and Miami International Airport (MIA) via the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC). Photo taken 01/23/16.
The Airport Expressway will connect with SR 9 (NW 27th Avenue) in one mile. The state road generally follows NW 27th Avenue between U.S. 1 near Coconut Grove and SR 817 in Opa-Locka. SR 9 joins Interstate 95 at the Golden Glades Interchange, following the freeway north to the Georgia State line. Photo taken 01/23/16.

Overhead toll schedule signage lines the Airport Expressway alerting drivers bound for the I-95 Express toll lanes of impending charges. The tolled lanes line I-95 north from the stack interchange to SR 818 (Griffin Road) in Broward County, with plans to extend it further north. Preregistered carpools (HOV-3 or more) and prepaid tolls may travel the 95 Express lanes free of charge. Photo taken 01/23/16.

The symmetrical stack interchange, known as the 36th Street Interchange, originally opened to traffic December 22, 1961. Additional high speed flyover ramps at the exchange opened in 1987 to connect the Airport Expressway to the former high occupancy lanes (now I-95 Express). Photos taken 01/23/16.
Due to the close proximity of ramps from Interstate 95 and North Miami Avenue, use of the upcoming exit to North Miami Avenue is prohibited. Photo taken 01/23/16.
