(MIAMI, October 2, 2012) – Miami-Dade County and the City of Miami Gardens are celebrating the recent completion of road improvements along NW 7th Avenue in Miami Gardens. The County and City will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the event on Thursday, October 4, 2012, at 10:00 a.m, along NW 7th Avenue at NW 185th Street (in the right-of-way) in Miami Gardens, adjacent to the Pentecostal Tabernacle International Church. Officials from the County, including District 1 Commissioner Barbara J. Jordan, and the City are expected to attend.
Improvements were made to NW 7th Avenue from NW 183rd Street to NW 199th Street. In addition to reconstructing and repaving the roadway, enhancements included new medians, sidewalks, landscaping, lighting, left turn lanes, bike lanes, and stormwater drainage.
The County and City entered into a Joint Participation Agreement to complete the project. The project was funded by County Road Impact Fees; the City managed the design and construction of the project.
The project was substantially completed by August 20, 2012 at a cost of about $3.4 million.
