"The Underline" presents master plan and framework design proposals for Brickell and UM areas

MIAMI (August 26, 2015)

Miami-Dade Transit and the Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Departments, in partnership with Friends of The Underline encourage residents to attend two public meetings in September to discuss The Underline’s developing framework and master plan, plus two demonstration projects in the areas of Brickell and the University of Miami (UM). The meetings will be led by The Underline’s master plan design team James Corner Field Operations.  

The Underline is a proposed 10-mile stretch of biking and pedestrian trails and park spaces located beneath the County’s Metrorail, in the transit department’s right-of-way, between the Miami River north of Brickell and Dadeland South stations. The project’s vision is to enhance connectivity, mobility, and biking safety for hundreds of thousands of Miami-Dade residents and visitors.
