County officials to break ground on new Snake Creek pedestrian/biking trail in NE Miami-Dade


Miami-Dade County Commissioners Barbara J. Jordan and Sally A. Heyman will join the Parks Department in breaking ground on the new Snake Creek pedestrian and biking trail that will run through both their districts.  A special ceremony will be held on Monday, July 23, 2012 at Sierra Park, 19601 NE 1st Place, at 10 a.m.

The project consists of constructing a 3.4-mile long, 10-foot wide paved, shared-use bicycle/pedestrian trail. Amenities will include enhanced landscaping, benches, trash receptacles, bike racks, shade/rain shelters, regulatory and way-finding signage and mini park areas, including exercise equipment areas and children playgrounds. The trail will run along the south side of Snake Creek Canal from NE Miami Gardens Drive to the Florida’s Turnpike.

Media note: Event will be set up immediately north of Sierra Drive at the end of NE 2nd Avenue. Parking is available around the park along NE 2nd Avenue, NE 19th Street and NE 1st Place. Media will be able to view portions of existing trail and visualize connection to Sierra Park.

For more information, please contact Commissioner Jordan’s office at 305-474-3011 or Commissioner Heyman’s office at 305-787-5999.
