To bring you up to speed: Miami Dade County’s Department of Transportation and Public Works had been proposing to build a bridge over the canal between SW 164th and SW 163rd to connect SW 87th Avenue, thereby alleviating north-south traffic.
The Palmetto Bay Village Council, in addition to the Cutler Bay Village Council, were against the idea, saying that it would impact the residents living in the area and reduce their quality of life. To resolve the difference, the County has decided to postpone the project and gather community input as well as hold public meetings before making a final decision.
