The FDOT is in the midst of making improvements to the sidewalk on the SW corner of Brickell and SE 13th Street. This intersection is dangerous enough for pedestrians when it’s not under construction, but today the FDOT tried their hardest to make it as difficult as possible for those that walk on Brickell to cross the street safely. Not only did they simply close the sidewalk to pedestrians, the actually had the audacity to put up a “sidewalk closed, cross here” sign where there isn’t a crosswalk!

Cross Here? But there is no crosswalk...

The closest crosswalk on the north-west side of this intersection is three blocks away on SE 10th Street. Pedestrians should not have to walk 6 blocks in the hot, blistering sun just to get to the other side of the street. This is an embarrassment. There was no thought given to the needs of pedestrians during the planning stages of the project. None whatsoever.

    There is now a huge pot hole on the Westbound side of SW 8th Street between Brickell Bay Drive and Brickell Avenue. This again is do to the lack of forethought of the group working on the street.
