Public Works and Waste Management
The Miami-Dade County Public Works and Waste Management Department provides waste collection and recycling services to more than 300,000 households in unincorporated Miami-Dade County and eight municipalities, including Aventura, Cutler Bay, Doral, Miami Gardens, Miami Lakes, Palmetto Bay, Pinecrest and Sunny Isles Beach.
The department engineers, constructs and maintains the County's roads, bridges, canals, sidewalks, street signs, pavement markings, traffic signals, street lights and stormwater drainage facilities. It maintains landscapes along the public rights-of-way of Miami-Dade County and also provides a mosquito control program.
Bear Cut Bridge repairs nearly underway
The Bear Cut Bridge – a portion of the Rickenbacker Causeway that links Key Biscayne and Miami – will soon be undergoing repairs required to rehabilitate the bridge.
Prior to the start of construction, which is anticipated to begin in May, the Department has implemented a maintenance of traffic designed to reduce congestion and provide safe travel on the bridge to all motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.
