Street Light Outage - Letter to Residents

Dear Village of El Portal Residents, 

Many of us have been wondering why the Street (Sidewalk) Lights are out on N.E. 2nd Ave. & North Miami Ave.    

The reason for the outage on these two streets is due to a situation that is occurring throughout Miami-Dade County.  Individuals are stealing the Copper Wires in order to sell them on the “black market.”  These wires are located within the ground, along the sidewalks.  Individuals are lifting up the wire covers, cutting, and stealing the wires, which leaves the street (sidewalk) lights non-operational.

The manufactures maintenance team is scheduled to repair it this week, and we hope to have the El Portal Electric Shuttle back on the road as soon as its safe. We encourage you to continue to use the shuttle and appreciate your patience.

What is happening with the N. Miami Avenue Bridge Reconstruction project, and why is it taking so long to complete?

According to Miami Dade County Department of Transportation and Public Works on June 16, 2022, this month the contractor continues working on the bridge.  The sheet piles on the north and south side were completed and crews will be working on preparing and pouring the concrete pile caps.  There are no changes to the MOT.
