WEEK OF 12/9/16

Speed Tables:  Installation of permanent speed tables began this week for the areas listed below.  The project is expected to be completed within the next two weeks.  
  • SW 87th Court between SW 168th and SW 174th Street
  • SW 83rd Avenue between SW 180th and SW 184th Street
  • SW 157th Terrace between SW 75th Avenue and Old Cutler Road
Please use caution when driving around these areas as there may be temporary street closures and traffic delays due to the project.  

Traffic Calming Plan: The Village's traffic engineer, Marlin Engineering, wants your input! Please take a few minutes to participate in this short survey to share traffic concerns.  

Additionally, this coming Monday, December 12, residents from District 3 (SW 168 Street extending south to SW 184 Street) are invited to participate in a public traffic meeting with Marlin Engineering to discuss traffic issues within your district such as speeding, volume/congestion, safety, and cut-through traffic .  

District 2 residents (SW 152 Street south to SW 168 Street, excluding Royal Harbor Yacht Club and Paradise Point) will also have an opportunity to meet with Marlin Engineering on Thursday, December 15 while District 1 residents (SW 136 Street south to SW 152 Street, including all of Royal Harbor Yacht Club and Paradise Point) will be able to address the engineers on Tuesday, December 20. All meetings will take place in Council Chambers at Village Hall located at 9705 E. Hibiscus Street, from 7-9 pm.  

Lastly, in an effort to better gauge traffic activity within Palmetto Bay, Marlin Engineering installed traffic counters throughout District 1. These traffic counters will be removed and installed in District 2 on Monday, December 12 and will remain in place through Tuesday, December 20.   

New Pedestrian Signal Coming to Old Cutler Road:  Thanks to the efforts of Councilwoman Karyn Cunningham who worked in conjunction with Miami-Dade County, County crews began the installation of pedestrian countdown signals at the intersection of SW 176th Street and Old Cutler Road.   
Palmer Trinity School Improvement Project: Roadwork on SW 184th Street and Old Cutler Road continues as part of the Palmer Trinity School Improvement Project. The roadwork should be completed by December 15. One southbound lane on Old Cutler will remain closed, but traffic will stay open through the southbound turn lane. Please expect delays in the area throughout the duration of the project; see proposed detour map.
