Planners meet public in Sunset Harbour on proposed West Avenue Bridge

The West Avenue Bridge information campaign travels to Sunset Harbour tonight at 6 p.m. The meeting happens in the Sunset Harbour south tower, seventh floor clubhouse, 1800 Sunset Harbour Dr.

The city of Miami Beach has until May 2 to decide whether to exercise an option for an easement on a small triangle of land owned by the Miami Beach Housing Authority north of 17th Street and the Collins Canal at West Avenue, which would provide the path for a bridge linking the West Avenue neighborhoods west of Epicure with the booming little Sunset Harbour hood.

The Florida Department of Transportation has had two public hearings to tell residents about options for the bridge (one is not to build a bridge at all) and gather feedback, and has another planned for 6:15 p.m. on March 27 at the Miami Beach Regional Library, 277 22nd St.

The Sunset Harbour meeting is the third planners have held with neighborhood groups; they met earlier this month with homeowners in Flamingo Park and on the Sunset Islands.

  1. nOne eighborhood’s solution becomes another neighborhoods problem.

    I live on West Ave and I am against the bridge.

    According to the city’s West Ave Bridge Traffic Report, a bridge will increase traffic on West Aveneue by 10% to 25%, while alleviating traffic on Alton Rd by 10%.
