Meeting to Discuss Loading Zones and Traffic Flow in Downtown and Brickell

(Miami, FL December 20, 2016) -

City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado convened a meeting of critical partners with an interest in reducing traffic congestion in the Downtown and Brickell neighborhoods of Miami.

Included in the meeting were top officials from the Miami Parking Authority, the Downtown Development Authority, the Miami Police Department, Public Works and a major parcel delivery service.

"Traffic is one of, if not the biggest complaint for City of Miami residents, businesses and visitors," said Mayor Regalado.

The goal of the meeting was to come up with ideas to improve traffic flow Downtown and in the Brickell area.

Several suggestions were provided by participants that can be immediately implemented, such as keeping unauthorized vehicles from parking in delivery loading zones so delivery truck would be able to make deliveries without stopping in roadways and obstructing traffic.

Other specific recommendations are being addressed as top priorities by everyone involved that include ensuring that buildings have loading zones and identifying opportunities for new loading zones as well as mini distribution centers in the area.

Follow up meetings are already scheduled between all parties that will result in a noticeable improvement in traffic movement Downtown and in the Brickell area.
