Miami-Dade County Commissioner Barbara J. Jordan and officials from the City of Miami Gardens recently celebrated the completion of road improvements along NW 7th Avenue in Miami Gardens. The County and City hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the event. 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 storm water 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 costing approximately $3.4 million.
