Here’s something to celebrate: The city of Miami Beach says the Alton Road reconstruction should be finished by the end of 2014, about seven months early.
Mayor Philip Levine announced the news in a press release after he and City Manager Jimmy Morales met with state officials on Thursday, including Gov. Rick Scott in Tallahassee.
In his release, Levine said “In addition to alleviating traffic congestion, this project has a flooding mitigation component that includes the installation of three new pump stations that will help alleviate the street flooding. Along with the new pump stations, the City will be strategically installing an additional 30 and 40 pump stations throughout Miami Beach to reduce the flooding.”
Sounds good to us. Let’s hope the new deadline gets met.
(apologies to all on the original post, which said the work would be done by the end of 2013 — typo. The blog needs more sleep!)
