Miami Lakes, FL - The Town of Miami Lakes is proud to announce the first phase of one of the state-funded venture, the Canal Stabilization Project, is successfully completed.
Through the FY2014 legislative appropriations, under sponsorship by State Representative Manny Diaz, Jr. the Town received $1,000,000 in grant funds for the first phase of the project. The project included the design and construction of approximately 3,000 linear feet of the Golden Glades Canal along the western boundary of NW 77th Court and the southern boundary of NW 170th Street, which were the most unstable portions of the canal bank and the areas most impacted by erosion.
The Town is actively pursuing State funds to continue the stabilization efforts westward along the NW 170th Street canal embankment.
