State Road 970, also known as the Downtown Distributor, is a short 0.563-mile (0.906 km) elevated freeway connecting Interstate 95 and U.S. Route 1 in Downtown Miami.
Route description 
The Downtown Distributor in May 2008
The expressway is two lanes wide in each direction, and had an annual average daily traffic volume of 34,000 according to a 2007 report, with an estimated volume of 37,500 in 2015.
In addition to the entrance and exit at US 1, SR 970 also has entrance and exit ramps at Miami Avenue, three blocks to the west. Eastbound drivers also can exit to SE 1st Avenue near the James L. Knight Center and the Miami Tower.
This route is unsigned. On the Interstate, there is no recognition of the State Road status of the Downtown Distributor, as exit signs in both directions indicate "Biscayne Boulevard, US 1". On the Distributor, both at the eastern end and roughly 0.2-mile (0.32 km) from the Interstate, State Road 970 shields are present, but without directional indicators.
It opened simultaneously with the adjacent stretch of I-95 in 1968.
Exit list 
The entire route is in Miami, Miami-Dade County.
