Please submit your public comment about Tamiami Trail rebuilding to ensure that cyclists and pedestrians are considered in the road/bridge design, and that the design is coordinated with the proposed River of Grass Greenway. The 30-day comment period ends May 9, 2008. Please take action - your comments can have a significant effect.
The specific name of this project is the Limited Reevaluation Report and Environmental Assessment (LRR/EA). Tamiami Trail Modifications extend for 12-miles west of Krome Ave. (= the eastern-most 12 miles of the ROGG). The purpose of the modifications is to improve water flow into Everglades National Park, as part of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP). Current plans include a 1-mile bridge with 12-ft travel lanes and 10-ft paved shoulders. Cyclists should be concerned about obstructions in the shoulder, such as rumble strips, raised reflectors, or drainage grates.
