Miami Lakes, FL - At the July 9th Town Council meeting, the Town awarded a contract to Acosta Tractors for the long awaited lane expansion of NW 154 Street between NW 84 Avenue and NW 87 Avenue. The project consists of expanding NW 154 Street in these areas from a single lane road to a double lane road, drainage improvements, roadway resurfacing, striping and the installation of new lighting.
Presently, Acosta Tractors is the contractor working on the construction of NW 87 Avenue. By selecting Acosta, the Town received the assurance of the Owner, Felix Acosta, that the improvements to NW 154 Street will be completed simultaneously with the completion and opening of NW 87 Avenue. Mr. Acosta also stated that both projects are expected to be completed by the end of the year.
"Our greatest holiday gift to the Town's residents will be the long awaited opening of 87th Avenue and having NW 154 Street expanded. This Contract assures us that we will have both done by Christmas time", said Mayor Pizzi.
