If you don’t get the marketing aspect of this, well, maybe one day when you grow up.

Yes who doesn’t love to take pictures of highway overpasses on their vacation? It will be the biggest attraction in Miami especially when it’s the only thing above water.

Millions photograph New York’s bridges, and Paris’, and London’s and San Fransisco’s and Seville’s and Sydney’s…you are going to hate the bridge no matter what anyone says. It’s not your money, it’s not for rapid transit, it’s not for parks, it’s not for you.

So it’s only the money of the people who support it? The money is public money controlled by the Dept of Transpirtation, not the Dept of Highways. The money could have easily been redesignated for transit. And every one of those cities including Sevilla has an extensive transit system. This “bridge” is ugly and insanely expensive and will create a massive dead space underneath it. Your relentless silly cheerleading won’t change that.

Not everyone takes pictures of their food or selfies sticking out their tongues. Mostly millinials do that.

The “marketing” aspect is that Miami prefers freeways to transit and walking. Car drivers are welcome, others should go elsewhere.

More than 16.5 million overnight visitors came to Miami last year, spending $18 billion dollars locally. That’s a 3.5% increase over 2017. They didn’t come to ride rapid transit. Yes, we need it. Yes we should build it. But the f**king bridge money was never meant for that. Get on with your life. Its sad.

Yes they all came to get stuck in traffic. It’s sad that so many people haven’t traveled to see real cities with real transportation systems.

Thank god construction is still on schedule.. they’ve just started… the change orders and delays will definitely come later. Hopefully Walsh does a good job, not like the sloppy work being done at I95 express..

Build transit first.
For what?
For whom?
90% of the population don’t have access to transit. Downtown population stands at 45K and they all, except for 1 building have free parking. Do you see where your formula is going?
Transit is built when and where a city wasn’t built for the automobile. And we are still perpetually mandating parking. So first go to the root, not a senseless, expensive solution.
