Doral mayor promises traffic improvements

Doral city officials announced a traffic-relief initiative Wednesday that will include widening streets, adding traffic signals and paving new roads.

The three-phase plan will use a combination of city and county funding to complete, with the first phase due to be finished in the next few months.

Some highlights of phase one include:

• Adding left turn lanes on east- and westbound Northwest 33rd Street at 87th Avenue. Expected to be finished in September.

• Adding a left-turn lane and right-turn lane on northbound Northwest 114th Avenue at 41st Street. Expected to be finished in June.

• Placing a traffic signal at Northwest 41st Street and 115th Avenue. Expected to be completed by the end of the year.

Mayor Luigi Boria said he has made addressing traffic congestion a priority since taking office in November as a result of hearing citizens’ concerns during his campaign.

City Manager Joe Carollo called city’s traffic woes “the worst-kept secret in Doral.”
