The City of Miami Beach is proposing to pedestrianize Española Way between Washington and Collins avenues, according to a meeting agenda published online.
The proposal is being called the South Beach Promenade Tactical Urbanism plan.
It would become the first pedestrian street in South Beach with an entrance directly on Collins Avenue, which has a high level of foot traffic (the famed Lincoln Road pedestrian street does not have a Collins Avenue entrance).
In addition to Española Way, adjacent areas would also be pedestrianized, the notice said.
Española Way is already partially pedestrianized west of Washington Avenue.
Miami Beach has also begin permitting for a $60 million renovation of the Lincoln Road pedestrian street, with completion in 2027.
