Old Cutler Road is an off-grid plan, 14.9-mile (24.0 km) main northeast–southwest road running south of downtown Miami in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States.

Route description[edit]

The northern terminus is Cartagena Plaza (Cartagena Circle) at the edge of the Coral Gables Waterway in the city of Coral Gables. It connects at the circle with LeJeune Road, Sunset Drive, Ingraham Highway and Cocoplum Road.

From this point south it goes through Coral Gables until it intersects with Red Road (West 57th Avenue). It then shares its name with Red Road, going due south for a short distance dividing the city of Coral Gables to the east with the village of Pinecrest to the west. It fully enters the village of Pinecrest upon crossing South 128th Street (Lugo Avenue).[1]

It continues southwest through Pinecrest until it curves due west and shares its name with South 136th Street dividing the village of Pinecrest to the north with the village of Palmetto Bay to the south for a short distance until it crosses West 67th Avenue (Ludlam Road) where it veers southwest and separates from South 136th Street as only Old Cutler Road again.[2]

It continues south-southwest through Palmetto Bay until it crosses South 184th Street and enters the town of Cutler Bay. It continues southwest through Cutler Bay until it crosses South 216th Street (Hainlin Mill Drive) where it divides the town of Cutler Bay to the east with unincorporated Miami-Dade County to the west, until it crosses Southwest 224th Street where it fully enters unincorporated Miami-Dade County and curves due west.

It continues west as Old Cutler Road until it crosses West 107th Avenue and becomes West Old Cutler Road. It continues west-northwest as West Old Cutler Road until it crosses West 112th Avenue (Allapattah Road) and shares its name with South 220th Street. South 220th Street is no longer called West Old Cutler Road west of West 124th Avenue.
