Changing traffic patterns
"The closures are necessary to implement the different components of the project, from tree root trimming and transplanting to the installation of water and drainage systems. An evaluation of the Maintenance of Traffic plan indicates that the nearest parallel roadways to the project, including Mary Street, are the most efficient detour routes for traffic along SW 27 Avenue," said Bassam Moubayed, CFM, Chief, Construction Division Miami-Dade County, Public Works and Waste Management Department.
Two Variable Message Signal( VMS) boards will be added at McDonald Street (SW 32 Avenue) at the intersections of Oak and Bird Avenues to advise motorists of the construction ahead and to seek alternate routes.
Recently business owners on Bird Avenue had a meeting with the city, they were concerned about their traffic patterns or lack of them when work starts on the Bird Avenue beautification project. The project was to start during this summer of 2014, but the city agreed to delay the project until the summer of 2015. Either way, it's going to be the next mess in the Grove after the SW 27th Avenue project is complete. But in the end, these messes will be beautiful roadways.
