The article, “South Florida’s Aging Infrastructure: Land of Perils and Opportunities,” written by Brett J. Moritz, an Associate in Peckar & Abramson’s Miami office, and Matthew H. Scott, a Partner with Dunay, Miskel & Backman, was published in the Daily Business Review/Law.com on June 3, 2020.
Brett and Matthew discuss how due to aging infrastructure, “contractors, developers, designers, construction workers—nearly everyone in the construction industry throughout South Florida—should be prepared for a significant increase in infrastructure-related construction work.” Because of the conditions resulting from the coronavirus outbreak like significantly fewer drivers on the road, many Florida infrastructure projects are being fast-tracked and some jurisdictions have even created infrastructure task forces. As Brett and Matthew write, “The hope is that these massive infrastructure projects will be a boon for the civil contractors in South Florida. However, opportunities are developing rapidly and contractors must be prepared to respond to these opportunities rapidly as well.”
