Following the approval of the required county permits, Palmetto Bay, in partnership with Miami-Dade County, started and completed the construction of the traffic circle at the intersection of SW 82nd Avenue and SW 168th Street/ Richmond Drive.
Besides the constructions elements of the project, the circle has been beautified by an original art piece created by local artist Xavier Cortada as part of the Village's Art-in-Public Places program. The name of the piece is "Flower Force" and it was inspired by the great array of native wildflowers in South Floriida.
