Work continues on the Caribbean Boulevard project

Caribbean-Roadway-Project-2-featuredWe hear that the Town of Cutler Bay is getting closer to completing the Caribbean Boulevard Roadway Improvement Project between Anchor Road and the C-100 canal. The project is on schedule and its expected completion date is May 2016. A detour was put in place while the closed section of Caribbean Boulevard is being worked on, to keep traffic moving, but it did cause some unavoidable inconvenience so we’re sure everyone will be happy to see the work wrapped up. Residents in the affected area should keep in mind that there is no easy way to totally redo a road without affecting access to locations along the route. We hear that the Town’s Project Team, along with the Town’s Policing Unit, have instigated the following changes: (a). temporary “Stop” signs have been placed at the following intersections: SW 103 Avenue & Cutler Ridge Drive and Belview Lane & Lenaire Drive for additional safety and traffic efficiency. (b). electronic speed limit radar trailers have been placed along Lenaire Drive and on SW 199 Street, in order to assist in the enforcement of the speed limits within the residential neighborhoods.

“We certainly understand the temporary inconvenience that residents who live along our Caribbean Boulevard planned detour routes are experiencing,” says Town Manager Rafael G. Casals. “The Town’s Project Team; including the Police Department are constantly monitoring the traffic flows and speeds throughout the community in order to provide a safe environment for homeowners and pedestrians.”

For information about the Caribbean Boulevard planned detour and/or the Roadway Improvement Project, contact Public Information Officer Janet Delgado at 305-619-5313 or by email at Additionally, Public information Sessions are held every Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Town Hall. Walk-ins are welcome.

Hey, the annual Easter Egg Hunt at Cutler Ridge Park takes place on Saturday March 12 from 10: a.m. to noon, at 10100 SW 200 Street. There are three age groups — 3 and under, 4-6 and 7-9 and a drawing will be done to give away an Easter basket in each age group. There’ll be music by DJ Ivan, the Miami Balloon Guy will be there and there’ll be the usual games for the kids, a bounce house and face painting. For info call 305-238-4166.

The National YoungArts Foundation’s 2016 YoungArts Miami program will take place from March 8-13 and offers YoungArts Winners from South Florida, selected from a record 12,000 applications from emerging artists ages 15-18 (or in grades 10-12), the rare opportunity to learn, connect and collaborate with fellow peers and luminaries in their artistic field.

During YoungArts Miami, participants will work with renowned artists including director, producer and creator of “The Technique” Joan Scheckel, and YoungArts alumni Yara Travieso (2005 Winner in Dance) and Jen Waldman (1993 Winner in Theater), who offer them support, mentorship and encouragement to pursue their passions and careers in the arts. The promising young artists will also have the chance to share their talents with the public through multidisciplinary performances, writers’ readings, a cinematic arts screening and a visual arts exhibition on the YoungArts Campus and at The Colony Theatre on Lincoln Road.
