Metromover repairs of falling concrete may dip into transit tax

Nov 27, 2019

Repairs to unstable concrete on the Brickell and Omni Metromover loops could begin next month, provided Miami-Dade lawmakers OK spending $5 million in People’s Transportation Plan (PTP) funds.

County commissioners are to decide Dec. 3 whether to pay Miami-based Gomez Construction Co. to make the repairs.

The Citizens’ Independent Transportation Trust, which oversees the PTP monies generated by a countywide half-penny transportation surtax, unanimously cleared the expenditure Nov. 20.

If approved next week, Gomez would within 150 days remove concrete, install safety netting and take other steps to prevent more debris from falling off the lines.
