Miami-Dade MPO Recertified until 2019!
Every four years the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) conduct a review of the Miami-Dade MPO’s transportation planning process, as required by law. The Federal Team conducted a site visit with MPO staff from April 22nd to April 23rd, which commenced with a comprehensive, interactive presentation provided by MPO staff explaining the multitude of work products completed and best practices achieved over the last four years. This presentation became the fabric of the meeting as both MPO staff and the Federal Team were able to communicate to one another what the required regulations were and how each one was successfully accomplished.
As a result of this effort, a joint letter from FHWA and FTA was received stating that the Miami-Dade MPO continues to satisfy the provisions for metropolitan transportation planning, thereby substantially meeting the requirements of 23 CFR Part 450.
Our certification will remain in effect until August 2019.
