He asked that trees be planted on the subject roadways as soon as possible. He also asked the Transit Agency Director initiate efforts to repair pot holes along I-95 north and south bound. Commissioner Sosa noted the ramps at the different intersections should also be improved. Commissioner Moss questioned whether improvements to I-95 was included as a part of the Shoulder Program.

Mr. Bradley noted the existing interlocal agreement between the Department of Transportation and the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority included a provision that the streets be swept to remove debris. Chairman Gimenez requested Transit Agency Director to explore the possibility of the County having Road Rangers to assist with the maintenance and to remove disabled vehicles along U.S. 1 and other major corridors. Commissioner Moss asked that County Administration to ensure that this program was monitored and enforced. Hearing no further questions or comments, the Committee proceeded to vote on the foregoing proposed resolution as presented.
