Causeway safety fund in works
County Commissioner Carlos Gimenez is getting traction with his idea of capturing 25 cents from every Rickenbacker Causeway toll and using the money for safety on the causeway and on Crandon Boulevard. The commission's public safety committee gave thumbs-up to Gimenez's resolution today and sent it on to the whole commission. The resolution would direct county administrators to report how much money that would generate and what could be done with it to keep cyclists and other causeway users safer. Co-sponsoring the effort are Commissioners Jose Diaz, Sally Heyman, and Rebeca Sosa.
