Racing deadline to close Dadeland Gap

Engineers and planners are busy trying to assure that contracts are awarded this year for the M-Path Extension. That's the project to close the Dadeland Gap, the 1.2-mile space between SW 67th Avenue and the Dadeland South Metrorail station.

Miami-Dade Transit, the path's owner, is reviewing comments on its plans in order to meet tomorrow's deadline at the state Department of Transportation. DOT wants the advertisement for bids to go out in time for a contract award before Dec. 31. Since this job is using federal economic stimulus money, starting it anytime soon depends on meeting that December deadline.
