Eleven More Blocks Of Beachwalk Now Open In Miami Beach, Entire City Will Soon Be Connected

Miami Beach has opened a major eleven-block expansion of its beachwalk.

The newly opened beachwalk brings the city one step closer to having a bicycle and pedestrian path that spans the entire length of the city, from South Beach to North Beach (around seven miles).

Last week, contractors completed a span from 53rd street in Mid-Beach to 64th street. It connects to an existing beachwalk north of there, which runs all the way to 79th street.

Phase 2 of the project is already under construction and will connect the new link at 53rd Street to an existing beachwalk which now ends at 46th street. Completion is scheduled for March 2019.

Also in 2019, the existing wooden boardwalk in Mid-Beach will be demolished and replaced. A small missing link in South Beach is also (controversially) under construction.

Or build a bike network that connects east/west from the beachwalk. It’s great, if you’re traveling alon the coast, but you’re SOL for the last few blocks.

Tell me that as a commuter in the middle of summer.

Time for the mainland to take the hint and get the riverwalk and Baywalk completed! Our region clearly desires more outdoor amenities!

>The section between Third and Fifth streets will likely be completed by the end of January,

Almost a year for a 2 block segment?

Also, shame on the building(s) that wouldn’t allow the beachwalk behind the dunes. There is already a dirt road there.

Ironically that decision by the building owners may adversely affect their properties by causing more flooding.

Great but you are not allowed to ride your bike on some parts of the beachwalk. Sign clearly says so.
So you have to get off your bike then hop on get off and hop on again and so on.

The beachwalk is nice but this is not a bicycle commuting corridor. You can lazily putter up and down in a beachcruiser I guess but it’s not meant to get anywhere. And that’s ok but let’s not act like this is a true alternative for cyclists trying to actually get to work etc.
