Alton Road Construction to Finish Up Seven Months Early
A road construction project in Miami-Dade that actually end not just on time but early? That may be the story with construction on Alton Road if all goes according to plan.
The project -- which has led to nightmarishly snarled traffic on South Beach for months -- was originally scheduled to end in the summer of 2015, but now could be completed by the end of this year.
There are obviously some compromises that have been made in order to speed up the project. The Miami Beach Commission voted to ease the city's noise ordinance so that crews could work longer hours.
Mayor Levine also met with Gov. Rick Scott and FDOT officials to ensure that the project is sped up.
