MIAMI (CBSMiami) – For the first time since a parking garage collapse forced the closure of the campus of Miami-Dade College West, when students head back to school for the Spring term they’ll get to head back to their old classrooms.
A letter from school President Dr. José A. Vicente on MDC-West’s web page said that campus re-opened on Monday for the Spring Term classes which begin on January 8th.
On October 10th, 2012 a new parking facility under construction collapsed killing four men. The building, located at 3800 NW 115th Avenue in Doral, was being built by the Ajax Building Corporation at a cost of $22.5 million. The garage was just two months from being completed and was being built using a precast concrete design.
After the collapse, the 8,000 or so students who go to the school were assigned alternate sites for their courses including MDC’s North Campus and Kendall Campus along with Ronald Reagan Senior High School.
