Full description

in order to speed traffic flow from the 836 to I 95. I PROPOSE THAT AN ELEVATED DUAL LANE BE CC OBSTRUCTED RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE OF THE HIGHWAY. THE SAME METHODOLOGY USED TO CONSTRUCT THE VARIOUS FLYOVER LANES COULD BE EMPLOYED HERE. THE EQUIPMENT USED WOULD BE WORKING ABOVE THE PRESENT TRAFFIC LANES AND WOULD ONLY MINIMALLY INTERFERE WITH PRESENT TRAFFIC. THE EQUIPMENT WOULD LAY THE ROADWAY AND MOVE FORWARD UPON IT AS EACH SECTION IS LAID. AN EXTRA EXPRESS LANE TOLL COULD BE CHARGED AND THE DIRECTION OF FLOW COULD BE SWITCHED AS NEEDED BASE ON THE TIME OF DAY. FOR EXAMPLE ,TRAFFIC TRAVELLING TO I 95 FROM THE PALMETTO ACCESS THE EXPRESS TOLL LANE AND THEN EXIT ON THE EAST END ONTO I95 NORTH OR SOUTH OR THE 395 TO THE BEACH. THIS WOULD FACILITATE TRAFFIC FLOW ACROSS TOWN AND TAKE SOME PRESSURE OFF THE AIRPORT EXPRESSWAY.

Hey j Steers 

My name is Wilda, also one of the facilitators and fellow Miami resident. So I hear nightmare stories about the 836. I've never had much business in that area but I see it one WSVN DAILY! I think one of the biggest problems is the lack of E/W connection. Do you take the 836? If not, what roads to you commute? How long are you on the road? Also, have you tried any other forms of transportation, say for example, public transpiration or ride sharing with coworkers? If so, what was your experience like?

Thanks SO much for joining the platform! Miami really is active and we're glad to have you talking about the challenges you face with traffic. :) Oh and don't forget to upload a profile picture as we keep the conversation going!
