Indian Creek Drive Flooding Mitigation Project

Notice Date: July 29, 2022

What's Happening

A new seawall is being constructed along Indian Creek Drive between 41 and 29 streets. The contractor commenced construction starting near 41 Street and is working south.

The contractor has established a temporary fenced staging area along the west side of Indian Creek Drive between 41 and 39 streets. This area is used for equipment and material storage.

The following activities are scheduled along the Indian Creek Drive:

  • Installing piles and wall panels from the barge between 37 and 35 streets.
  • Forming and pouring concrete seawall cap between 39 and 37 streets.
  • Receiving additional material to the site.

One southbound lane may be closed along Indian Creek Drive between 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. while the contractor receives material deliveries. The bicycle lane may also be closed as needed during this time. Bicyclists may use the southbound travel lane during the work.

This schedule may change due to unforeseen conditions or weather. 


This project phase is expected to be complete by the spring of 2023.

Construction work hours are weekdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Extended time is subject to city approval and community notification. This schedule may change due to weather events or unforeseen circumstances.

Project Overview and Benefits

The City of Miami Beach is surrounded by 55 miles of seawall. Of that space, only 5 miles of seawall is publicly owned. Efforts to raise and replace sections of seawalls are steps toward achieving a more resilient waterfront for our city as a whole. Seawalls with higher elevations will help mitigate the bigger picture effects of tidal flooding and rising sea levels.

What to Expect

This schedule may change due to unforeseen conditions or weather.

  • Moderate levels of noise are expected during construction.
  • Heavy equipment, machinery and workers will be present on the job site.
  • The work zone is expected to be accessed from the creek and land side of the seawall for these efforts.
