On March 2, 2018, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held to inaugurate the Canal Bank Stabilization Project. In this project, A&P Engineers was responsible for providing Construction Engineering and Inspection Services (CEI). The scope of this project focused on improvements to the Dressel Canal along NW 41st Street from NW 87th Avenue to NW 79th Avenue as well as adjacent to NW 107th Avenue from NW 52nd Street to NW 57th Street. Aside from improvements to the canal, this project included constructing a pedestrian and bicycle shared use path, named Dressel’s Dairy Trail, along NW 41st Street from NW 87 Avenue to NW 82 Avenue. This path will improve cyclists’ safety, facilitate multimodal usage of the corridor, and ease congestion in the area.
City of Doral Mayor, Juan Carlos Bermudez, and Vice Mayor, Ana Maria Rodriguez, presided over the event and were accompanied by many other local leaders; Nelson Perez, P.E. (CEI Department Head), Juan Medina, P.E. (Project Manager), and Jorge Abela (Senior Inspector) were also in attendance as representatives of A&P Engineers.
