WHEREAS, Andrew J. Capeletti was founder of Capeletti Bros., Inc., a construction engineering firm responsible for building many of the highways and bridges in Florida from Fort Pierce to the Florida Keys, including the Golden Glades Interchange, major sections of I-95, I75, I-595, Florida’s Turnpike and the Miami Avenue Bridge; and

WHEREAS, Capeletti civic contributions are numerous, including serving as the President of the Hialeah-Miami Springs Chamber of Commerce; and
WHEREAS, Capeletti died in 1991; and
WHEREAS, the Ramp to be named in honor of Capeletti is a state road located in unincorporated Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, section 334.071, Florida Statutes, provides that the installation of road designation signs shall be contingent on the applicable county or city commission passing a resolution in support of the particular honorary road designation; and
