More roads "not the answer" in Miami-Dade

Miami Herald: "Moreover, several county commissioners who have influence over local transportation issues have said they want to see projects that benefit mass transit, not cars.

“More roads is not the answer to traffic congestion,” said Miami-Dade County Commissioner Rebeca Sosa during a recent meeting in which FDOT officials outlined a project for an overpass at the corner of Southwest Eighth Street and 87th Avenue.

The next meeting on transit solutions is scheduled for Wednesday at 3 p.m. in the County Commission Chambers downtown."
