The Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department is embarking on a beautification project at the Pelican Harbor Marina Boat Ramp Parking Lot located on the south side of 1275 NE 79th St, Miami, FL 33138. The department anticipates a construction start date of September 2018 and the project is estimated to be completed by the Fall of 2019. The project will be executed in three (3) phases so that the boat ramp remains open at all times with approximately 40 parking spaces available to patrons. This project includes renovating the existing parking lot and creating a new layout to improve traffic flow. There will be a new right-turn lane eastbound into the main entrance, a new 8-foot-wide pedestrian walkway, new lighting and landscaping, new drainage swales and catch basins. The existing asphalt will be removed and will be re-graded, resurfaced and restriped. For more information on this construction project, go to the Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department website.
