Plan Z has evolved to incorporate additional elements that
would transform the Rickenbacker Causeway from its outdated,
dangerous, single-use infrastructure into a world class, multimodal
transportation and recreation asset that promotes
equitable public access, health and well-being, coastal resilience,
and environmental protection.

and procurement specialists to
determine the feasibility of such
a project. Subsequently, a Design
Criteria Package was created by a
county engineering consultant to
guide the county's causeway design
objectives. This included hiring
a financial consultant to ensure
that financial calculations were accurate
and achievable.
The time is certainly right for
P3s, especially with the federal infrastructure
bill encouraging state
and local governments to consider
this type of funding model for
complex projects like Plan Z and
other types of multi-modal transportation
endeavors.
Former President and CEO of
Enterprise Florida and Florida
Secretary of Commerce Bill Johnson,
an advocate for P3s and Plan
Z, says the community benefits
of this endeavor " include a transfer
of risk for cost overruns that
protects taxpayers. The county's
RFP for the Rickenbacker ensures
a competitive bid process, significant
public engagement and the
use of private dollars to benefit the
greater community. "
Johnson also points out that the
RFP creates capacity for potential
federal infrastructure matching
funds. " The federal infrastructure
bill will likely increase private activity
bond volume for
surface
transportation projects, a central
financing tool for P3 projects that
lowers the cost of financing and
encourages private interest, " says
Johnson.
While the future of the Rickenbacker
RFP and its scope and
timeframe for proposal submissions
are
currently
being
reviewed
by county elected officials,
the Plan Z team remains
committed to their vision for
transforming
Causeway. " Plan Z has undoubt " The
federal infrastructure

financing tool for P3 projects
that lowers the cost of financing
and encourages private interest. "
edly kickstarted a conversation in
Miami-Dade, and we are eager
to contribute to this cultural shift
by bringing to Miami this critical
infrastructure project, " says Zyscovich.
" What started out as a
quest to get some green paint on
the pavement grew into a multijurisdictional
discussion on how
to improve overall transportation,
recreation and climate resilience. "
