Comments on: Unclogging Biscayne Boulevard http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2014/03/05/unclogging-biscayne-boulevard/ The Newspaper for the Future of Miami Mon, 15 Dec 2014 20:13:57 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.0.1 By: flblaine http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2014/03/05/unclogging-biscayne-boulevard/#comment-2182 Sun, 09 Mar 2014 03:44:10 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=21012#comment-2182 A trolley is a device that carries electric current from an overhead wire to an electrically driven vehicle. Miami, Coral Gables, Coconut Grove…nowhere in Dade County does a trolley exist. They do, however, have buses. Loud, smoking, stinking, polluting conveyances that are usually late with, more often than not, kamikaze drivers.

Expand the people mover, especially to the beach. They don’t conflict with traffic, aren’t loud, don’t stink (well, at least on the outside), don’t smoke, don’t pollute and they have better drivers.

All the buses and trolleys use the same roads so if cars can’t get around then buses and trolleys can’t. What is needed is someone in office to make some difficult decisions ASAP and get mass transit options into downtown and connecting to the beach.

Nothing to see here.” That’s what a cop will tell you when traffic slows to a crawl so motorists can get an eyeful of the latest accident on our highways. That’s what I heard when I read this article. Nothing new here, folks, same ol’ same ol’, keep on moving past the accident called Biscayne Blvd. Alyce M. Robertson, executive director of the Miami Downtown Development Authority, kept reminding her audience about MetroMover and MetroRail which help lessen downtown gridlock. I’m surprised she didn’t ask for more of these solutions since more buses and trolley cars will only add to the problem, i.e., they use the same finite number of streets that become undriveable during rush hour– forgedabou during special events. The most ironic thing is that when the county was building the Arsht Center, why didn’t somebody then suggest that maybe, just maybe, the plaza connecting the two centers sitting on each side of Biscayne Blvd should have been built OVER the street? Shutting Biscayne Blvd down for special events must have sounded like madness then but…

Sounds like typical Miami politics.
