Miami Waterway Wall Must Partially Go

Wall Built too Big – Part of it must go

Miami Beach: Part of a 2,700 foot wall extending into the Indian Creek Waterway may have to be torn down due to illegal building permits purposely overlooked by Miami’s chief building engineer.  The Indian Creek Seawall, which cost the city some $25.5 million to build thus far, was meant to provide adequate driving conditions and prevent flooding in the event of severe rises in sea levels, especially during the ever-worsening hurricane season. According to official reports, the wall was built without the corresponding permits, and thus must undergo a multi-million dollar project to repair the former engineer’s blunders. Though the project was suspended in January, the modifications are expected to resume sometime in the near future. Despite only a part of the wall having to be torn down, the rebuilding process is expected to the represent an estimated $800,000, an depends highly on the landowners willingness to  allow construction of the wall on the land. However, failure to comply of the city’s request to build a seawall on behalf of the landowners, could lead to the city imposing a tax to help pay for the wall.
