Miami-Dade Commissioners’ Committee Rejects Push to Extend the Dolphin Expressway

Miami Herald reports, “The bid to extend the Dolphin Expressway into Kendall hit a major roadblock on Tuesday [June 13] when a panel of Miami-Dade commissioners rejected the proposal, saying they couldn’t let the highway grow past the western edge of urban development.” The report adds, “The proposal died in a 3-2 vote by the commission’s Government Operations committee. But it does not kill the push to create a southwest beltway for the Dolphin, a tolled expressway known as State Road 836. But the vote gave environmentalists an early win in blocking the extension. . . . “
