Doral Breaks Ground on NW 102nd Avenue Connection
Doral, FL – On March 1st, the Mayor and City Council, joined by the City’s administration and JVA Engineering Contractor, Inc., broke ground on a roadway project. The project will complete the connection between NW 41 Street and NW 90 Street and will help reduce congestion in the area by providing motorists an alternative to NW 107 Avenue and NW 97 Avenue. This new roadway will enhance connectivity for residents of the Atlantic, Neovita, Vintage, Mansions, Doral Palms, and Landmark communities and the parents that drop-off and pick-up students at the Doral International Academy of Math and Science.
“As not just an elected official, but also a resident, I understand the necessity of projects that help alleviate traffic”, said Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez. “This connection will have a major impact on hundreds of families, making their commutes and lives that much easier.”
The road, which is scheduled to be completed by Fall 2019, will include two traffic lanes (one lane in each direction and extra wide shoulders), drainage improvements, curb and gutter, street lighting, and bicycle shared use lanes (Sharrows). Furthermore, it will help improve emergency response times for Doral Police responding from the area station and enhance connectivity for area businesses.
The City will also be following through with a separate project that will construct a traffic signal at the NW 74 Street / NW 102 Avenue and NW 97 Avenue / NW 97 Avenue intersections in order to improve safety at these intersections. The City is moving forward with the construction of these signals in order to expedite this safety improvement and will be reimbursed the cost of construction by Miami-Dade County.
