State Road 933 (SR 933), locally known as West 12th Avenue, and Ronald W. Reagan Avenue, is a 4.25-mile-long north–south street entirely within the city limits of Miami, Florida. Its southern terminus is an intersection with Coral Way as Coral Way changes from Southwest 22nd Street to Southwest Third Avenue; its northern terminus is an interchange with the Airport Expressway (SR 112). North of Dolphin Expressway (SR 836), reassurance signage is virtually nonexistent (only one near the SR 836 onramp for southbound motorists), and the only indication of SR 933 existing north of Northwest 14th Street is a pair of trailblazer signs on Northwest 36th Street (US 27-SR 25).

Route description[edit]

State Road 933 begins at the intersection of Coral way and SW 12th Street, with SR 933 proceeding north on SW 12th Street. From here north to SW 11th Street, SR 933 passes through one of Miami's oldest residential developments, the Roads neighborhood, with many buildings the survivors of the Great Miami Hurricane of 1926. North of SW 11th Street, SR 933 enters Little Havana and its mixture of small businesses and residences, with intersections at US 41/SR 90 (Calle Ocho) and at Miami baseline road Flagler Street (becoming "NW"), and five blocks north of Flagler Street, passes two blocks east of Marlins Park. Just north of NW 7th Street, SR 933 crosses the Miami Canal, followed by an interchange with the Dolphin Expressway (State Road 836). Within one block of either direction of the Dolphin Expressway interchange, SR 933 passes by the Civic Center district, with government buildings, law offices and other buildings associated with the Miami-Dade county legal system, and is close to other businesses: hotels, a supermarket and a marine supply store.

Between NW 14th Street and NW 19th Street, SR 933 passes through a hospital complex comprising the Jackson Memorial Hospital, Cedars-Sinai Hospital, the Veterans Affairs Hospital, clinics associated with JMH, and Miami Dade College - Medical Center Campus. From NW 14th Street north to its northern terminus of the Airport Expressway (State Road 112), the Miami Metrorail is within 25 feet of SR 933, paralleling the state road. Between NW 19th Street and NW 24th Street, SR 933 goes through the Santa Clara business and industrial parks, and at NW 21st Street, has the Santa Clara Metrorail Station. North of NW 24th Street, the road goes through residential areas to its northern terminus, with an intersection with US 27 at NW 36th Street, with the Airport Expressway interchange three blocks north, State Road 933's northern terminus.[2][3]
