Update on Traffic Problem at NW 87th Avenue and NW 170th Street

 
Miami Lakes, FL - The Town of Miami of Lakes is fully aware of the major traffic problem at NW 87th Avenue and NW 170th Street that residents are dealing with on a daily basis as a result of the County’s NW 87th Avenue Roadway Improvement Project, the installation of water main pipe and replacement of a culvert crossing for the NW 170 St Canal.

Unfortunately, due to an inordinate amount of unforeseen underground utility conflicts, the work has been delayed and all current detours will remain in place. The current timeline for the opening of this intersection is projected for November 15, 2014.

Collaborating together, the County and the Town met with County Commissioner Esteban Bovo and all key members of the project to find a solution to alleviate the congestion and create a more constant flow of traffic.

It was proposed at the meeting and later agreed upon that the project contractor will hire police officers from the County to specifically be assigned to help direct traffic on this stretch of roadway weekdays from 6:30 am to 9:30 am and 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm.

The Town and Bovo’s office will continue to monitor this situation.
