The Miami-Dade Aviation Department (MDAD) gained final approval from the US Department of Commerce to designate Miami International Airport‘s entire 3,230-acre land parcel as a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) magnet site.
The magnet site designation allows existing or prospective airport tenants to operate manufacturing, warehousing and/or distribution centers on airport property, and have their federal tariffs deferred, reduced or eliminated – providing time and cost savings for approved importers and exporters.
The Northwest 25th Street viaduct, completed in August, is getting good reviews from users.
The viaduct, built to alleviate traffic congestion in one of the county’s busiest industrial areas, separates commuter traffic from cargo trucks going to and from Miami International Airport’s West Cargo Area on Northwest 82nd Avenue. For most of its length it runs along the north side of Northwest 25th Street, going over the expressway and touching down just east of Northwest 82nd.
