Two South Dade projects win innovative grants to ‘quick-build’ separated bike lanes
MIAMI-DADE – Commissioner Levine Cava's office will partner with the Town of Cutler Bay, area stakeholders and community volunteers to create a protected bike lane along Cutler Ridge Boulevard. The road currently has a bike lane which will be improved to provide greater safety for cyclists trying to connect to the many civic, cultural and shopping destinations along the road.
An overly wide road adjacent to Briar Bay Park will also be improved with volunteer help to provide new protected bike lanes and, based on community feedback, also improves on-street parking for better park access.
"The Quick-Build grant will give us an opportunity to jump-start great quality of life improvements for these two important parts of my district," stated Commissioner Levine Cava. "Both of these projects will only succeed with volunteer help, so we're already eagerly recruiting civic-minded people looking to invest a little 'sweat equity' in our community."
If you are interested in participating or contributing to either project, please call Commissioner Levine Cava's District Office at 305-378-6677 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Earlier this week, the Miami-Dade County's Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) and Green Mobility Network announced the selection of 18 projects to be implemented as part of Phase I of the Quick-Build Program. The Quick-Build Program is part of a broader effort to create a more responsive and efficient process for delivering projects that improve access to public transit and safe bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure.
