Beginning on Friday, May 26, 2017, Miami Parking Authority (MPA) will implement a one-hour free-parking special program on Flagler Street in downtown Miami in an effort to ameliorate the impact of construction on residents, merchants and visitors.  The one-hour reprieve will expire at the end of construction.
