Flagler Trail Could Eventually Become A Path For Pedestrians & Bicyclists From Downtown To Aventura

The Flagler Trail Master Plan Study was presented last week to the City of Miami Beautification Committee.

The goal is to create a north-south trail running from downtown Miami to Aventura, a presentation stated.

It will be designed for bikes and pedestrians, and not for motorized traffic.

Six transit stations along the route will be connected, allowing for first mile/last mile connectivity for non-motorized travel.

The total length of the trail would be around 14.5 miles, starting from around Brightline’s new MiamiCentral station to Aventura.

According to Friends of Flagler Trail, it would be part of a much larger 225 mile pathway known as the Miami Loop connecting much of Miami-Dade County.

This is exactly the kind of development needed to balance the density and connect our communities and to provide us all with safe pedestrian friendly alternatives! Kudos to all involved!!

All over the civilized world (Europe, Asia, and Latin America) including much worse climates than Miami, there’s infrastructure that supports public use of cycles. Miami seems not to be in the civilized world.

As long as it is designed with electric scooters in mind.

It will take twenty years of studies to get this done…

And only one year of studies if they wanted to build a highway instead.

Bravo to our friends at Miami-Dade TPO & Gannett Fleming for advancing this concept.

The FEC Corridor should definitely house a bike trail and a walking trail! Long overdue. Respect for history and Lemon City and Little River.

C’mon, our grandkids will all be dead of old age before Miami-Dade spends money on a public benefit like this
