Airport May Stand In The Way Of Miami Freedom Park


Miami-Dade County commissioners met to discuss issues that need to be addressed before the Miami Freedom Park officially opens.

The stadium, which will host the Inter Miami CF soccer team, will be located right next to Miami International Airport.

Miami-Dade Commissioner Rebeca Sosa and others, say the stadium will have a negative impact on those who live in the area due to the traffic.

“This is something that is not only going to change the lives of the neighbors that are right there, but it’s also the airport,” she says.

The stadium will be located in a direct flight path at Miami International Airport.

“As you’re getting closer and closer to the runway, you want to make sure that you don’t have objects that are above a particular height,” says Lester Sola of the Miami-Dade aviation department. “So, there is a review that’s involved that involves both the FAA and the county.”

There are also concerns with lighting, such as the glare from the illuminated roof, which could impact visibility for pilots and air traffic controllers.
