Also are there any planned expansion projects....such as to FIU or North Miami/Aventura??
There is all sorts of talk but here in South Florida talk is cheap and I do
not know just what is planned or will actually happen if they ever find a
way to finance expansion.
We are a fast growing area and have lots of ways to spend available funds
and I just can't imagine the current traffic problems in another few years
if they continue to just study and talk and do nothing more.
We are still not getting full value or use out of what we have, bus service
generally stinks, Tri-Rail does not have any late night service and the
Metro-Rail system in Miami shuts down at midnight. What is needed is
much more bus service everywhere, better connections between buses
and buses and rail, more frequent Metro-Rail service and they badly need
to get Tri-Rail completely free and clear of CSX before CSX drags it
down any more than they already have.
I-95 has six lanes in each direction in places and I don't see how they
can continue to plug that. The other interstates and expressways are
probably just as cluttered during rush hours too.
What does the future hold? I really don't know.
