State Road 924 - Gratigny Parkway

Home » Guides » Florida » State Road 924 - Gratigny Parkway


Measuring 8.49 miles in length, Florida State Road 924 follows Gratigny Parkway from Miami Lakes to Opa-Locka and NW 119th Street east to North Miami and Biscayne Park. Operated by the Miami Dade Expressway Authority (MDX), the Gratigny Parkway comprises a six lane toll road from the exchange joining the south end of Interstate 75 with the Palmetto Expressway (SR 826) to the Douglas Le Jeune Connector at Amelia Earhart Park.

The Gratigny Parkway was proposed in the 1969 Miami Transportation Study as the Opa-Locka Expressway. The Opa-Locka Expressway was planned to bridge the east-west gap in North Dade, roughly paralleling the existing Gratigny Drive / NW 119th Street corridor. Built between December 1987 and January 1992, the Gratigny Parkway represents the western half of the Opa-Locka Expressway. The name "Gratigny" comes from the name of the landowners who owned property in the vicinity of the area prior to development.

The section of the Opa-Locka Expressway from NE 27th Street east to U.S. 1 was canceled due to community opposition. A revised proposal for extending SR 924 east to Interstate 95 resulted in a Project Development & Environment (PD&E) Study began in June 2010. However subsequent action by MDX placed the SR 924 East Extension PD&E on permanent hold.

The PD&E for the MDX SR 924 West Extension, lengthening the Gratigny Parkway to the Homestead Extension of Florida's Turnpike (HEFT) along NW 138th Street, was completed in 2015. A Design Phase Reevaluation followed, with the design build for the section between the HEFT and NW 97th Avenue included in the Five Year Work Program.
