Tamiami Trail serves as a dam, stopping the flow of water south to Everglades National Park.
"Everglades Skyway" is the name Sierra Club members affectionately call the bridging of Tamiami Trail, authorized by Congress earlier this year. The Obama Administration has started building the first mile of bridging.
Senator Bill Nelson, and Congressional Representative Alcee Hastings joined Biden for his tour of the Everglades.
Sierra Club Everglades Representative Jon Ullman and I were among 60 people invited to join the Vice President at the event -at the very spot where the work has begun to elevate the first mile of the Trail.
