West End Connectivity Master Plan

These proposed improvements will connect with existing greenways and add approximately 15 miles of bike routes.
New fitness trail along 157th Avenue will connect to existing path
Residents can look forward to a new fitness trail that will provide connectivity to an existing path in the West End. The Miami-Dade County Commission recently approved legislation sponsored by Commissioner Juan C. Zapata to create a “linear park” along SW 157th Avenue between Bird Road and SW 59th Terrace. The “SW 157th Avenue Linear Greenway'' will link to an existing path on SW 157th Avenue that stretches from SW 59th Terrace to Sunset Drive.
