New sex offenders move under bridge, as older ones are re-located
MIAMI (WSVN) — Several convicted sex offenders who lived under the Julia Tuttle Causeway bridge may have found new homes, but now new convicted offenders are being forced to move under the bridge.
Director of the Miami-Dade Homeless Trust, Ron Books successfully found homes for 18 of the offenders living under the Julia Tuttle Causeway. “I believe that we are on our way to closing the Julia Tuttle Causeway,” he said. “We have served up very clear notice to the people living under the Julia Tuttle Causeway that the end is coming, and it is coming sooner than later.”
The Department of Corrections, however has reassigned more convicted offenders to live under the bridge.
County officials are hoping to find a way to close the encampment down by the end of this month.
