Amtrak Is Finally Not Ignoring Miami Airport Station’s Existence, Even Though Its Trains Have Fit Perfectly Fine For Years

A fully built-out train depot, including ticket counters, a waiting room, dedicated bathrooms, various other such spaces tailor-made for Amtrak's use, and direct links to a bevy of other transportation options, neglected to collect mothballs by Amtrak for an incredible seven years, may finally be put to use. When the Miami Intermodal Center, also known as the Miami Airport Station (even though technically it's a depot) was completed back in 2015, Amtrak realized a little late that the platforms were too short. Due to what was basically just a mammoth screw-up, the rear end of an Amtrak train would have to stick way out into traffic going along NW 25th Street like a one-thousand-one-hundred-foot-long, metal Kim Kardashian.

New West Avenue Bridge is Finished, Connecting it With Sunset Harbour

The bridge connecting West Avenue south of the Collins Canal with the smaller section of the street that cuts through Sunset Harbour is finally done. The connection gives Sunset Harbour another link to the heart of South Beach, although it does add more concrete and asphalt to an area that already feels overwhelmed with roads.
