Major Improvements Are On The Way!

Woman Construction WorkerThe Village of El Portal will be constructing Phase One of the Stormwater Improvements Plan in the El Jardin neighborhood in October 2021. There will be road construction to NE 86 Street at NE 2nd Avenue to N. Miami Avenue, that will close the streets to traffic except for local traffic only. Any specific work being done in front of someone’s home that requires closure will be coordinated through our nice contractor, Southeastern Engineering Contractors. Your patience is appreciated during this four-week construction project that will result in far less ponding and flooding in your area.

Start Date: October 4, 2021
End Date (Projected): January 3, 2022

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

This is what was asked of Miami Dade County Department of Transportation and Public Works again this week and here is what they said. “Since the last update, there has been significant progress. We have received all of the required permit approvals from the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and are awaiting approval from the Army Corp of Engineers for the canal embankment protection system developed by the Design Build Team. 

In the meantime, the contractor has placed temporary supports, at designated areas of the existing bridge, to extend its lifespan. Our Design Build Team is inspecting and maintaining the site regularly, ensuring the safety of the public and that the Maintenance of Traffic devices are properly in place.

We are hoping that very soon we will receive all permits and be ready to resume construction.  Thank you so much for your patience and support.

Joint Statement on Rising COVID cases from Miami-Dade Elected Leaders, Healthcare Leaders, and Public Safety Officials

Our very own El Portal Police Chief, Mr. David Magnusson, is an official signee of this document, due to his very important position as the ‘COVID-19 Committee Chairperson for the Miami-Dade County Association of Chiefs of Police.

There is no question Miami-Dade has made great progress tackling coronavirus – but recent trends show clearly that the pandemic is not over. With new, more contagious, and more dangerous COVID variants on the rise, particularly the Delta variant, the positivity rate is steadily increasing again – now up to 8.3% from 3.6% less than a month ago – as are hospitalizations.

The facts are clear: the vast majority of those who end up in the hospital due to COVID are unvaccinated. In the last three weeks, the number of COVID-positive inpatients at Jackson Health System has increased 178 percent. Nearly all of them, a whopping 95 percent, are unvaccinated, and more than 40 percent are younger than age 50. The Delta variant is especially dangerous for young people, as we see a growing number of otherwise perfectly healthy patients in their 20s and 30s hospitalized with worsening symptoms…

FEMA Proposes Changes to Flood Maps to affect El Portal and Miami Dade County.

The FEMA Region IV project team anticipated issuing preliminary maps for the Miami-Dade County Coastal Physical Map Revision (PMR) in December 2019. However, around that same time, the project team learned that the Miami-Dade County Cooperating Technical Partner (CTP) was submitting updated hydrologic and hydraulic modeling and floodplain mapping data for the C-8 and C-9 canal basins.
