New "No Thru" street sign at Cottonwood Circle and SW 152 Avenue
On October 07, 2019, a “No Thru Street” sign will be installed at Cottonwood Circle and SW 152nd Avenue. The existing “Do Not Enter” and turning restriction signs (during school arrival/dismissal times) will be relocated to Cottonwood Circle and SW 149 Place. This modification is being done as a pilot study which will run until the school’s winter break. The study is being conducted to ensure the modification improves accessibility conditions for those residents who live on the west side of Jane S. Robert K-8 Public School and to ensure that no traffic intrusion is unintentionally created.
Stop sign reversal at NW 15 Avenue and 77 Terrace
On October 25th, 2019 the Miami Dade County Department of Transportation and Public Works will start the process of removing the stop signs at NW 15th Avenue and NW 77 Terrace in the Eastbound and Westbound lanes, and the installation of new stop signs for the Northbound and Southbound lanes at the intersection.

Don’t Blow It, Bag It!
The summer season usually brings an increased chance of street flooding during heavy downpours in South Florida. What many residents may not be aware of is that some street flooding can be avoided or minimized, by making sure that storm drains are clear of grass clippings, leaves and other debris.
