TITLE
RESOLUTION ESTABLISHING COUNTY POLICY THAT THE COUNTY ARTERIAL NETWORK EXTEND WITHOUT DEAD-ENDS, WITHIN TRAFFIC ENGINEERING STANDARDS, THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY AND IN FURTHERANCE OF THAT POLICY, DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR COUNTY MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO TAKE ALL ACTIONS NECESSARY TO CONSTRUCT A BRIDGE THAT WOULD EXTEND SW 87TH AVENUE FROM SW 164TH STREET TO SW 163RD TERRACE CROSSING OVER THE CUTLER DRAIN CANAL C-100 (“BRIDGE PROJECT”); APPROPRIATING $3,100,000.00 IN UNENCUMBERED ROAD IMPACT FEE FUNDS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY CARRYOVER FUNDS, FROM THE FISCAL YEAR 2020-2021 COUNTYWIDE GENERAL FUND BUDGET FOR THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF THE BRIDGE PROJECT; AND FURTHER DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR COUNTY MAYOR’S DESIGNEE, SHOULD ADDITIONAL FUNDS BE NECESSARY, TO IDENTIFY AND APPROPRIATE, IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 2-1796 OF THE COUNTY CODE, LEGALLY AVAILABLE FUNDS FROM THE FISCAL YEAR 2020-2021 COUNTY BUDGET FOR THE BRIDGE PROJECT, AND TO INCLUDE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF SAID BRIDGE PROJECT, AS NECESSARY, IN THE MAYOR’S PROPOSED BUDGET FOR FISCAL YEAR 2021-2022

BODY
WHEREAS, SW 87th Avenue is an arterial road that runs north and south through the County from the Black Point areas south of Cutler Bay to almost the Broward County line north of Miami Lakes; and
WHEREAS, currently, the stretch of the Cutler Drain Canal C-100 which runs east and west between SW 164th Street and SW 163rd Terrace in Palmetto Bay, Florida, blocks northbound and southbound traffic along SW 87th Avenue and forces drivers to take circuitous routes along local roads in order to get to the other side of the canal; and
WHEREAS, the construction of a bridge that would extend SW 87th Avenue from SW 164th Street to SW 163rd Terrace crossing over the Cutler Drain Canal C-100 (the “bridge project”) would address roadway connectivity and capacity needs in the area; and
WHEREAS, the bridge project was recommended as part of a 2014 Transportation Planning Organization (“TPO”) arterial road study that focused on providing missing links throughout the County arterial network; and
WHEREAS, the County estimates that the cost of design and construction for the bridge project is approximately $3,100,000.00; and
WHEREAS, one of the best ways to improve mobility in the County is to connect missing links within the County’s arterial network; and
WHEREAS, the bridge project would allow traffic to redistribute to a more appropriate location that has a normal roadway grid; and
WHEREAS, the completion of the bridge project is in the best interest of all County residents as it is expected to resolve significant traffic gridlock that is created during peak traffic hours and will provide connectivity for public safety and emergency service vehicles; and
WHEREAS, the Office of Management and Budget and the Department of Transportation and Public Works has advised that there are sufficient, unallocated road impact fee carryover funds in the Fiscal Year 2020-2021 Countywide General Fund Budget to fund the design and construction of the bridge project; and
WHEREAS, specifically, the Reserves for Future Capital Projects category of the Transportation and Public Works Impact Fee Program – Roadway Construction, Fund CI 340, has sufficient unallocated funds to cover the costs of design and construction of the bridge project,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:
Section 1. Approves the foregoing recitals, which are incorporated herein by reference.
Section 2. It is the policy of this Board that the County arterial network extend without dead-ends, within traffic engineering standards, throughout the County and in furtherance of that policy, this Board directs the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee to take all actions necessary to construct a bridge that would extend SW 87th Avenue from SW 164th Street to SW 163rd Terrace crossing over the Cutler Drain Canal C-100. The County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee shall, at a minimum, coordinate with the TPO Executive Director to prepare and place all necessary agenda items on the first available TPO Governing Board’s agenda to amend the Long Range Transportation Plan and the Transportation Improvement Program to include this bridge project, and at the appropriate time, to issue the necessary procurement documents in order to construct the bridge.
Section 3. To the extent consistent with the requirements of Chapter 33E for expenditure of road impact fee funds, this Board appropriates $3,100,000.00 in unencumbered road impact fee funds, including but not limited to any carryover funds, from the fiscal year 2020-2021 County Budget for the design and construction of the bridge project identified in section 2 above. Should additional funds be necessary to complete the design or construction of the bridge project, this Board further directs the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee to identify and appropriate, in accordance with the authority set forth in section 2-1796 of the Code of Miami-Dade County, Florida, legally available funds from the fiscal year 2020-2021 County Budget that independently or combined may be utilized to fund the bridge project, and to include the implementation of said bridge project, as necessary, in the Mayor’s Proposed Budget for fiscal year 2021-2022.
