Miami-Dade County bike paths a part of FDOT’s 5-year plan

The draft of the Florida Department of Transportation District Six work program for fiscal years 2013/2014 through 2017/2018 lists several “bike path/trail” projects slated for execution within the next five years.

These projects include a greenway in Overtown between NW 3rd Avenue and NW 7th Avenue (slated for construction in 2014 at a cost of $1,085,000), another greenway connecting the Miami Circle Greenway to South Miami Avenue (to be built in 2014 at a cost of $865,000) and Segment C of the Biscayne Trail (running along the the L-31E Canal from SW 328 ST to the Black Point Marina; this is set for construction in 2014 at a cost of $1,085,000).

With regards to pedestrian safety improvements, FDOT’s work program lists several “Safe Routes to School” programs as well, slated for execution in 2014 and 2015 and targeting various schools throughout Miami-Dade County including Palmetto Elementary School in Pinecrest, Oak Grove Elementary in North Miami, and North Hialeah Elementary in Hialeah.

The document cover indicates that “Project Information is Subject to Change”, meaning that anything from the cost of a given project, its planned time of execution and even nature of the project itself described isn’t set in stone.
