Stop the FDOT Rapid Transit Expansion on Kendall Drive before it’s too late!
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
This petition is to stop the proposed plan by the Florida Department of Transportation to make extreme changes to Kendall Drive that will affect all of us who live in the area.
They are proposing reducing traffic lanes on both sides of Kendall Drive from SW 79th Avenue to Krome Avenue. They are proposing a bus lane and a bike lane. They are proposing a train to go down Kendall Drive either on the road or on an elevated platform. Also, they will have to provide stations for people to get on and off the trains. These stations will include 79th Ave, 90th Ave, 107 Ave, and more along the route to Krome Ave.
How does that make any sense? The traffic on Kendall Drive is already terrible, and they want to reduce the number of lanes on either side from 3 down to 2? And how will people get to and from the stations? They are making so many uninformed assumptions about where people work and how they will get to their jobs. And they have not contacted residents to get their opinions. This has all been done quietly so as to avoid opposition, which they know they will get once residents in the area find out. Our property values will decrease while our noise & traffic increases, and construction on this project will be long & messy, bringing more headaches for residents whose daily commute is already a nightmare.
It’s so important to have our voices heard on this matter. If you agree that this project will be a nightmare for residents in the Kendall area, and you would like to stop this ill advised transit plan, please sign the petition below asking our State Representative, Daniel Perez, to stop this project before it’s too late!
