Franjo Road and Cutler Ridge Drive Intersection Added Safety
As many of you know, the intersection at Franjo Road and Cutler Ridge Drive is one that has seen several vehicular accidents—this is something Town staff and Council have known and have advocated for the implementation of additional safety measures for some time now.
Just a year ago, in April of 2019, at the request of Town Council and Staff, a traffic study was performed at that intersection by Marlin Engineering. The goal was to identify the best option to make this intersection safer. The results of the study determined that the intersection does not meet the County’s criteria to install a traffic signal or a four-way stop sign (Franjo Road is a Miami-Dade County owned and maintained road). Instead, the study's conclusion and recommendation was for a roundabout to be put in place.

Every year on Arbor Day, we normally hold a ceremony and tree planting to celebrate the day. Although the COVID-19 pandemic has changed things up this year, Town Staff and contractor VisualScape headed to Cutler Ridge Park yesterday to plant a new tree, in honor of Arbor Day, which is officially tomorrow, Friday, April 24.
The Arbor Day Foundation is also changing things up and is encouraging everyone to celebrate the day by doing the following:
Post a photo of your favorite tree, use the hashtag #arbordayathome, and tag the Arbor Day Foundation. They will plant a tree on your behalf in one of our nation’s forests…up to 50,000 trees!
