TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR COUNTY MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO PREPARE A FEASIBILITY STUDY REGARDING THE CONVERSION OF CERTAIN TWO-WAY ROADWAYS TO ONE-WAY ROADWAYS IN ORDER TO ALLEVIATE TRAFFIC CONGESTION IN MIAMI-DADE COUNTY; AND DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR COUNTY MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO PROVIDE A REPORT AND PLACE THE REPORT ON AN AGENDA OF THIS BOARD

BODY
WHEREAS, the alleviation of traffic congestion and the creation of a safe and efficient transportation system are issues of paramount importance in Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, the exploration of alternative means for the alleviation of traffic congestion is in the best interests of the public; and
WHEREAS, some methods which have been utilized in areas outside of Miami-Dade County in order to improve corridor travel times and to increase roadway capacity are the conversion of certain two-way streets to one-way streets and the creation of alternative grid circulation patterns; and
WHEREAS, converting two-way streets to one-way streets could potentially result in moving traffic more smoothly, fewer turn delays, and increased safety,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:
Section 1. This Board directs the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee to prepare a feasibility study on the method and means by which two-way roadways can be converted to one-way roadways, including but not limited to: (a) the identification of potential project areas in Miami-Dade County for such conversion, after consultation and coordination with municipalities to the extent that such potential project areas are within municipal boundaries; (b) a preliminary summary of other areas outside of the County where such conversion has been implemented; (c) an estimate of the costs associated with such conversion and potential funding sources; and (d) an identification of any additional studies required in order to effectuate the conversion or to complete the analysis requested herein, as well as the costs, if any, of obtaining such additional studies.
Section 2. This Board directs the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee to provide a report of this feasibility study to this Board within 180 days of the effective date of this resolution and place the completed report on an agenda of the Board pursuant to Ordinance No. 14-65.
