Elsewhere, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) began a roadway construction project Jan. 4 along Biscayne Boulevard from Northeast 196 to 213 streets in Aventura. The project will cost an estimated $3.52 million and take roughly 10 months to complete. A public information meeting will take place to discuss the project from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday at Highland Oaks Park, 20300 NE 24th Ave. FDOT representatives will provide an overview of the project and answer questions.
