Miami-Dade County's DTPW Receives Envision Bronze Award

MIAMI, FL — The Miami-Dade County's Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) received an Envision Bronze award from ISI for the Dolphin Station Park-and-Ride/Transit Terminal Facility project. This is Miami-Dade County's second Envision award for a public project. The project officially opened in March 2020. Its purpose is to offer customers a safe, comfortable, and convenient transportation option that connects major employment areas and reduces traffic congestion.

The following are a few sustainability achievements verified:

  • Supports current and future economic growth and development. This project creates new capacity in the East-West corridor supporting commercial growth and future business opportunities. During construction, this project created more than 100 jobs, 32 of which were from small and local businesses.
  • More than 700 vehicles can be taken off the roads by planning and designing this project to encourage the community to use public transportation. The project eases traffic congestion and improves mobility. In addition, this project is expected to have positive impacts on air quality by transitioning more cars to electric and fostering more bus usage.

“This award is a direct result of outstanding collaboration between DTPW and our Office of Resilience to ensure infrastructure projects are prioritizing sustainability and resiliency,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava. “This achievement recognizes how Miami-Dade County continues to go above and beyond to deliver social, economic, and environmental impacts for our community.”

“The Dolphin Station Park-and-Ride/Transit Terminal Facility is an outstanding example of Miami-Dade County’s innovative approaches to resilience that not only encourage people to get out of their cars and enjoy public transit, but also reduce our region’s carbon footprint," said Miami-Dade County Chief Resilience Officer Jim Murley. "Forward-thinking planning, such as our Sustainable Buildings Program, ensures that Miami-Dade maximizes the value of its capital assets while also supporting healthy lifestyles for our residents and the millions of tourists who visit each year.”
