Photos: ‘Curbless,’ Pedestrian-Friendly Street, Similar To What Is Proposed For Flagler Street

These photos show what appears to be a curbless, pedestrian friendly road In Midtown Miami similar to what is contemplated for Downtown Miami’s Flagler Street.

Earlier this year, construction on a more conventional plan for Flagler Street was halted in order to incorporate the curbless idea.

They stopped for Mana

No they stopped for a shoddy contractor.

They need to close it off permanently to vehicular traffic and turn it into downtowns “Lincoln Road”, with cafes, shade trees and seating down the middle. It starts at Brightline/Government Center, and ends at Bayfront Park. It’s a no brainer.

Agreed!

Perfect, since local politicians have no brains.

Now, let’s make it happen after so many stops and starts.

No parking? 🙂

Miami would hire same crew doing West Flagler…forget that

You guys that say close Flagler and make it like Lincoln road must not live in downtown, traffic is bad enough on Brickel ! Start with tunnel first

Flagler isn’t an important thoroughfare, calm down. I do live and work downtown. Shut it all down to cars. Zero reason to traverse downtown in a car.

Closing Flagler to vehicular traffic costs a whopping $0 and can be done tomorrow.
“Start with the tunnel first”, while there should be a tunnel connecting Brickell, will cost over $1,000,000,000 and take years.

and ps, I do live downtown

there should not be a tunnel connecting brickell there is already a freeway and a metromover connecting it.

Don’t see the point, when all the other streets downtown will have curbs and sidewalks.

The curbless streets along Miracle Mile are very well done, I am greatly looking forward to a similar experience in Downtown Miami

Had dinner on Giralda Plaza.. closed off traffic.. no comparison to Flagler.

Miracle Mile certainly is a good comparison. The switched from angled parking to parallel parking which allowed for wider sidewalk and they went to curbless street with bollards. Its very nice.

7th Avenue at MWC will probably be more analogous to Giralda once it’s all built out.

Coral Gables and midtown vibe can’t happen in downtown Miami.

When Mana is holding everything back, nothing can’t.

Really? Ever been to downtown Denver?

not every downtown is the same and downtown denver is filled with lightrail.

Maybe it can, but will require a lot more than micro curbs.

Not with zero setback towers and giant parking pedestals on every building.

Right? It’s kind of a lost cause. 40 story buildings need more than 5 foot wide sidewalks…but they’re still being built. At least Midtown Miami sidewalks were done right.

SRS

The idea is to rework Flagler not the entire downtown. They are trying to invigorate this corridor and at the end other streets in downtown could indirectly benefit from this work.
