As the second week of public school is underway in Miami-Dade County parents for children attending Norma Butler Bossard and Jorge Mas Canosa, finally had some of the congestion disappear. With two public schools within a few blocks the Corsica Square area in South West Kendall serves close to 4,000 students. This within a residential area and one lane roads. During last week the first week of school some parents reported sitting at the light at 152nd Street trying to cross 157th Avenue for twenty to thirty minutes with no way of going anywhere else.
Traffic was blocked each day in the morning and afternoon at 152nd Street for blocks and blocks. Somehow the synching of the traffic lights had been changed during the summer and only 6 to 8 cars were able to pass the light. Investigating this problem the County did not have an immediate answer to what had happened to the traffic lights. However an investigation was opened last Friday. Tuesday morning finally the County had changed back the lights to normal and parents crossing 157th Avenue now only have to sit for a few minutes.
