Miami-Dade mayor to get state's ear on tunnel project
By ALFONSO CHARDY

Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez and other county officials will travel to Tallahassee on Monday for a meeting with Florida Secretary of Transportation Stephanie Kopelousos in a bid to fast-track construction of the stalled Miami tunnel project.

Victoria Mallette, a spokeswoman for the mayor, said Friday that the meeting is in response to Alvarez's letter Tuesday in which he urged Kopelousos to move more quickly on the tunnel and not rebid the project.

Mallette said Alvarez is expected to be joined on the trip by several county officials involved in or familiar with the tunnel project, including Port of Miami director Bill Johnson and Miami-Dade Aviation director José Abreu.
