Quick-Build Program

The Miami-Dade Transportation Quick-Build Program is a County effort that provides funding and technical assistance to anyone who wants to make short-term, low-cost transportation improvements to their neighborhood. Funding for this program is provided by a grant awarded to the non-profit Green Mobility Network by the New York City-based non-profit, Transit Center.

Quick-Build projects are based off of the project delivery process called Tactical Urbanism, coined by Miami-based, urban planning/design firm The Street Plans Collaborative.

By using the Tactical Urbanism framework, we hope to inspire city leaders, citizens, institutions, and other entities to take action now in their neighborhoods.

The Quick-Build Program is underway, with projects being built this fall and into 2018.

 

Tactical Urbanism projects include:

Public Spaces
Biscayne Green in Downtown Miami transformed two parking medians into a dog park, playground, seating area, open lawn, and venue for live entertainment. The city is still evaluating the impact it will have on the surrounding area.

 

 

 

Bike lanes
This month-long project in Bella Vista, Arkansas allowed the city to test out a new route for a protected bicycle facility, informing their efforts to make it permanent in the future.

 

 

 

Curb extensions
In Cudahy, CA, the crossing distance was significantly shortened at a mid-block crosswalk by painting an extension and lining it with physical barriers. The city collected public feedback for a day on the design.
