FROM:Commissioner Steven Meiner 
DATE:July  28, 2021
 



SUBJECT:REFERRAL TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND QUALITY OF LIFE COMMITTEE TO DISCUSS THE FEASIBILITY OF UNDERGROUND TUNNELS TO ALLEVIATE SURFACE LEVEL TRAFFIC CONGESTION.

ANALYSIS

As more people are migrating to South Florida, we need to rethink the way we approach transportation. One trending concept is the use of underground tunnels to alleviate surface-level traffic congestion. Other cities are following suit, such as the City of Fort Lauderdale recently opening an RFP to construct underground mobility infrastructure. The specific purpose of this discussion is to explore the feasibility of underground mobility infrastructure in Miami Beach.
