The CITT will be holding a vote tonight on the proposed widening of SW 157 Avenue from 152 street to 184 street. Currently a two lane road, 157 avenue is adjacent to the UDB, and will be converted into a higher speed four lane collector. This is yet another colossal waste of taxpayer dollars (to the tune of $13.2 million), and a great example of how the transportation tax has been wasted on projects that exacerbate our traffic problems, while not addressing our defunct transit system. Keep in mind that this road is close to Lennar’s proposed Parkland development (on 152 Street) and will surely come into play once the UDB battle ramps up again.
The meeting is at 6 p.m. at the Stephen P. Clark County Center, 111 NW 1st St. Please come out and let the members of the CITT know that road widening next to the UDB is a BAD idea and not what the transit tax is for!
