RESOLUTION URGING THE FLORIDA LEGISLATURE, THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, FLORIDA'S TURNPIKE ENTERPRISE, THE SOUTH FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT AND OTHER PERTINENT STATE DEPARTMENTS TO FUND AND INSTALL GUARDRAILS ON HIGHWAYS ADJOINING CANALS IN HEAVILY-TRAVELED AREAS

BODY
WHEREAS, many highways and roads in Florida run parallel to canals; and
WHEREAS, tragic accidents have occurred when drivers leave these highways and roads and enter the canals; and
WHEREAS, the installation of guardrails could prevent many such accidents; and
WHEREAS, the benefits of guardrails particularly along heavily-traveled highways and roads outweighs to cost of installation,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board:
Section 1. Urges the Florida Legislature, the Florida Department of Transportation, Florida's Turnpike Enterprise, the South Florida Water Management District, and other pertinent state departments to install guardrails on highways and roads running parallel to canals, particularly along heavily-traveled routes.
Section 2. Directs the Clerk of the Board to transmit copies of this resolution to the Chair and members of the Miami-Dade State Legislative Delegation, the Secretary of the Florida Department of Transportation, the executive director of Florida's Turnpike Enterprise, and the executive director of the South Florida Water Management District.

Section 3. Directs the County's state lobbying team to advocate for the passage of legislation and the changes in policy set forth in section 1 above. The Office of Intergovernmental Affairs is directed to include this item in the 2006 State Legislative Package.
