Miami-Dade transportation study aims to tie bike, walking trails into mass transit plan
Jul 02, 2018
The Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization has ordered a budget to study a project to connect non-motorized bicycle and pedestrian paths with the Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit (SMART) Plan. “We’re going to get all the trails united,” Commissioner Rebeca Sosa said after voting for the plan and asking to co-sponsor the resolution by City of Miami Mayor Francis Suarez. Several major public-private trail projects could be considered for a SMART Trails program, including the Underline, a 10-mile linear park and urban trail below the Metrorail running from the Miami River north of the Brickell Metrorail station to the Dadeland Metrorail station; the 6.2-mile multi-use Ludlam Trail running parallel to and west of Ludlam Road from near Northwest Seventh to Southwest 80th streets; and the Miami River Greenway, a public pathway running about 5.5 miles on both sides of the river west from Biscayne Bay toward Miami International Airport.
