Miami-Dade MPO Executive Director set to retire
Irma San Roman, Miami-Dade MPO Executive Director, will be retiring October 31, 2014 after 35 years with Miami-Dade County. Irma has spent her entire career dedicated to planning the transportation system in the county. With her creativity and open-mind, she supported and led the implementation of many transportation projects benefiting our community.
She began her career in transportation with the Miami-Dade MPO in October 1986 where she advanced through the ranks as a Special Projects Administrator to Executive Director. She was the first female to lead the organization since its inception in 1977. While still serving as MPO Deputy Director she was called on, by the County Manager, to step in to temporarily lead a Citizens Independent Transportation Trust to guide the use of the funds from a half penny sales tax approved by the voters.
Under her leadership, the MPO moved to another level of “planning to reality”; helping along planning ideas to become real projects. Her work has been recognized at the local, regional, state, and national levels. Finally, with her guidance, the MPO Governing Board has approved a series of incisive transportation planning studies and adopted sets of both 5-year projects, as well as long range projects, to meet the unique transportation needs of the community now and into the future.
“Irma’s experience and expertise proved instrumental in placing our MPO Governing Board in a dynamic position to react to the changing needs of our community while finding innovative solutions to countywide transportation issues. I applaud her for an exemplary tenure as Executive Director of the Miami-Dade MPO and wish her much continued success.” – MPO Governing Board Chairwoman Rebeca Sosa.
The Miami-Dade County 2040 LRTP is adopted
We want to thank everyone who helped shape our 2040 LRTP over the past two years! We have created a video for you to watch (see link below) explaining exactly how your comments will affect Miami-Dade County's transportation system's future.
Town of Cutler Bay Transportation Master Plan
This master plan update strives to review the existing plan and incorporate citizens concerns reported over the past five years. In the process, existing conditions were documented by the collection of new data. The plan has resulted in the recommendation of an entirely new project bank which prioritized all of the pending projects and removed completed projects. This is the initial planning phase in the development of a multimodal transportation capital improvement plan.
Douglas Road Transit Corridor Final Report Available
The primary objective of this study was to develop and evaluate feasible premium transit improvement options along the Douglas Road Corridor, extending at a minimum from the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC) on the north to the Metrorail system to the south (in the vicinity of US-1) while connecting various major employment centers and transit generators.
2014 Freight Plan Update
The updated County Freight Plan examines the infrastructure needs for the Miami-Dade County through 2040. The results of this study will feed into the Regional Freight Plan and the Miami-Dade County 2040 LRTP.
New guide to street planning balances needs of pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists
A special study advisory committee has developed a manual for transportation planners, architects and engineers to use to create “Complete Streets” which provide a transportation infrastructure that balances the needs of all users.
Complete streets provide mobility, support livability, and spur economic development objectives, while providing more mode choices.
