Newly elected Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine-Cava has announced plans to prioritize the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists.
The mayor made the remarks in her 2021 State of the County speech last week.
Levine-Cava said the Department of Transportation and Public Works is planning to create a pedestrian-first Transportation Master Plan, and is now studying potential models.
There would also be departmental changes to reflect pedestrian and bicyclist safe streets as a priority going forward, she added.
Miami-Dade must also continue working towards building the Smart mass-transit plan in the county, she said.
The first phase of the Smart plan, the 20-mile South Corridor, will soon move forward and will connect Florida City to the Broward County line, according to Levine-Cava.
