U.S. Highway 41 South - Miami-Dade County


U.S. 41 South
Diversion dams such as this one help regulate water flow in the Everglades, especially along the canal that parallels U.S. 41 from Miccosukee Indian Village east to Sweetwater. Photo taken 12/28/03.
The aforementioned canal is visible along U.S. 41 eastbound as it passes through the Everglades west of Sweetwater in Miami-Dade County. Photos taken 12/28/03.
The two-lane monotony of the Everglades comes to a sudden end at U.S. 41 eastbound approaches a large casino on the north side of the road and the intersection with Florida 997, Krome Avenue (SW 177th Avenue). Photo taken 12/28/03.
Formerly known as Florida 27, this state road was renumbered in the late 1980s to eliminate confusion with nearby U.S. 27. Florida 997 extends north from here to U.S. 27 and south from here to Homestead via some primarily agricultural areas where sugar cane and other crops are grown. Photo taken 12/28/03.
Eastbound U.S. 41/Florida 90 reaches Florida 997, Krome Avenue. Photo taken 12/28/03.
After the intersection with child U.S. 441/Florida 7, U.S. 41 continues east along Calle Ocho through Little Havana. The Interstate 95 viaduct is visible along with the downtown Miami financial district to the east. Photo taken 12/28/03.
A right turn here provides a connection to southbound Interstate 95, which only exists for only about a mile south of here before being subsumed by U.S. 1/Dixie Highway. U.S. 41 continues straight ahead to downtown and U.S. 1 north to Miami Beach. Photos taken 12/28/03.

From U.S. 41, this ramp makes the connection onto Interstate 95 south to U.S. 1 and to Key Biscayne via Florida 913, the Rickenbacker Causeway. Photo taken 12/28/03.
Miami Avenue is a major north-south city arterial. East of Miami Avenue, all avenues and streets are signed NE or SE. West of Miami Avenue, all avenues and streets are signed NW or SW. Photo taken 12/28/03.
Eastbound (Southbound) U.S. 41 approaches its southern terminus at U.S. 1 in downtown Miami. Photo taken 12/28/03.
End shields for U.S. 41 are posted on both sides of the highway. Tamiami Trail, which generally follows U.S. 41 from Tampa to Miami, comes to its southern conclusion here at U.S. 1. Photo taken 12/28/03.
U.S. 41 reaches the end of its southerly journey in the shadows of the tall buildings of Miami's financial district. Previously, U.S. 41 continued east by turning north on U.S. 1, then crossed Biscayne Bay via MacArthur Causeway. In 1999, U.S. 41 was truncated to this point. However, it is still a fitting conclusion to a major transcontinental U.S. route, since it originates at the shore of Lake Superior and ends here near Biscayne Bay. Photo taken 12/28/03.
