I-395 http://wlrn.org en Gov. Scott Seeks Funds For Miami's 'Signature Bridge' http://wlrn.org/post/gov-scott-seeks-funds-miamis-signature-bridge <p></p><p>Under construction during most of the 1960s, Interstate-95 ripped right through the heart of Overtown. Thousands of homes were torn down. Instant slums were created as the concrete expressway ripped apart the neighborhood's cultural, economic and education connections.</p><p>The result is the Overtown that's visible today -- the Overtown that's still trying to recover.</p><p>"[I-95] caused great harm in the past," says Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez. "We need to rectify that."</p><p>So, let the rectification begin.</p> Mon, 18 Nov 2013 13:06:15 +0000 Rick Stone 23595 at http://wlrn.org Gov. Scott Seeks Funds For Miami's 'Signature Bridge'
