The congestion in the downtown/Brickell area has reached an intolerable level. As anyone who crosses the Miami River with any regularity knows, bridge openings wreak havoc on drivers. Remove the bridge.
We should create a new entrance ramp to Interstate 95 at Southwest Seventh Street and Fourth Avenue.
Drivers north and south of the Miami River need to use the Metromover rather than cars. If they must drive, they should use I-95 rather than Brickell.
Let’s all think outside the box. If we build a tunnel, it should be along Southwest First Street and Flagler Street so there is a decent flow of traffic out of downtown.
There is plenty of access to Interstate 95 north and south, so surface traffic should only be east and westbound.
