The Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) is studying the implementation of the Beach Rapid Transit Corridor Project. The Beach Corridor runs from Midtown Miami to the Miami Beach Convention Center along the MacArthur Causeway. The corridor is being studied as a part of the Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit (SMART) Plan, which has identified the development of six rapid transit corridors that will directly support the mobility of our future population and employment growth.
Recently, Miami-Dade County Director of Transportation and Public Works, Alice Bravo explained the SMART Plan on NBC 6.
The five other SMART Plan rapid transit corridors include the South Dade TransitWay Corridor, Kendall Corridor, North Corridor, Northeast Corridor, and East-West Corridor. Study activities will be performed in the context of the Beach Corridor, while coordinating with the overall multi-corridor SMART Plan.
The study aims to identify locations for transit stations, and Park & Ride lots/transit terminals, and the implementation of a cost-effective, high-ridership, new premium transit service with supporting pedestrian and bicycle facilities. Premium transit modes to be evaluated include Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), Light Rail Transit (LRT), Heavy Rail Transit (HRT), and Metrorail at-grade (powered by overhead lines), on exclusive lanes.
The SMART Plan should bring positive impacts to our economy by generating more housing, retail and office developments near transit stations, and more job opportunities in the transportation industry, during and after implementation of the SMART Plan.
On Monday, July 30, DTPW provided a presentation to industry experts regarding potential project delivery and finance structures for the Miami-Dade County SMART Plan. The presentation took place at Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus.
Two public meetings (PDF) were held to provide detailed information about the Beach Corridor study on July 25 and 27.
