U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has Metrorail ‘s North Corridor expansion on his mind, according to the Herald.
Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava spoke to Buttigieg about the project, the report said.
“If I didn’t already have the North Corridor on my mind when I got here, the mayor made sure that I’m going to have it on my mind as I leave,” Buttigieg said.
County officials are hoping to get around half the cost to build the $2 billion project from the federal government. An application is pending.
Since the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law was passed, Miami-Dade County has received over $400 million in federal funds.
Overall, Levine Cava’s administration says it has been able to secure over $1.3 billion in federal and state grant funding combined.
