Florida Judge Rejects Plan for MDX Parkway Extension

Miami Herald reports, “Opponents of a proposed $1 billion highway extension through wetlands in western Miami-Dade won a legal victory [yesterday] when an administrative judge rejected the planned southwest route for State Road 836, citing uncertain impacts on Everglades preservation and ‘meager’ improvements of traffic congestion.” The ruling came in the form of a recommendation that the DeSantis administration reject Miami-Dade County’s development application for the 14-mile Dolphin Expressway extension it proposes to build in collaboration with the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority.
