County to celebrate Rickenbacker Causeway upgrade

County Commissioner Carlos Gimenez would like to see as many of us as possible at 10 a.m. Friday on the Rickenbacker Causeway, to celebrate a beautification and shore-protection project on Hobie Island and Virginia Key Beach.  The ribbon-cutting will take place next to MAST Academy, 3979 Rickenbacker Causeway.  

Cyclists have been noticing and commenting on the work for months now.  The $6.8 million project by Miami-Dade Public Works was begun in September 2009 and had three major elements:
  • Shoreline stabilization.
  • Stormwater management and parking improvements.
  • Upland landscaping, with removal of exotic vegetation.
