Stricter rules on construction timelines.

I saw a couple people saying they are sick of construction creating clogs.These projects almost always take longer than they say they will.

I think it is time to enforce the originally stated time frame of construction work that causes traffic jams. I think there should be a penalty if a project takes a month or longer than the original finish date set in place to complete. Hope that makes sense, that's just my two cents on the matter.

Hi Leah Perks 

I’m Wilda, one of the community facilitators here.

Construction on has been a theme in the community amongst several residents in Miami. Have you’ve experienced longer than normal construction projects? If so, in what areas?

I belive most contractors pay a fine if they miss the deadline imbut I don’t know if it means anything if they have the means. Whenever I am curious about a particular project I check out this resource: http://www.miamidade.gov/publicworks/construction-projects.asp

No specific areas come to mind, but it just seems to happen more frequently than one would expect in the Miami area.

Want to dive in a bit? Ford is committed to helping us with the traffic challenges we face here. Teams who can identify the issues and then follow the path of The Challenge will be awarded $100K and meet with city planners to make it happen. :)

What roads have you taken in the last few days have made traffic difficult to get through? Specifically, how does it impact your commute?
