Public meeting scheduled for Wednesday, Aug 30, 2017, 6:30 to 8:30 PM to discuss possible bridging of 87th Avenue

Do you have an opinion or stake in the 87th Avenue bridge?  All sides need to attend and voice your concerns. Please see the e-mail from our District 8 Commissioner, Daniella Levine Cava.  This meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, August 30 6:30PM - 8:30PM and will be held at the Palmetto Golf Course Meeting Room, 9300 SW 152nd St, Miami, FL 33157

Here is a verbatim of the e-mail:

Dear District 8 Residents,
The Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) has agreed to present transportation updates at a community meeting to be held at Commissioner Levine Cava’s request. This presentation comes after the Commissioner requested that DTPW delay moving forward with plans to pursue a bridging project across the canal at 87th Avenue until further data could be obtained and public input received. 
Traffic engineers will present their study data on the possible bridging of SW 87th Avenue across the canal, north of SW 164 Street, which is being recommended by DTPW.  Before this project could move forward, it would need approval from the Transportation Planning Organization (TPO). I serve as one vote on the TPO and I am eager to hear from you on this issue. 
The engineers will also provide updates on the new signal management system and discuss traffic modifications along Old Cutler Road. 
Commissioner Levine Cava has not taken a position on the bridge proposed on 87th Avenue, and recognizes that the Village of Palmetto Bay Council has voted to oppose it. She believes it is necessary for the County administration to receive and consider input from the area residents, municipal governments and other stakeholders before proceeding.
DTPW will be available to answer questions and address concerns, as well as to welcome all public input.

I respectfully request that you plan to attend and participate.
