Plans for a second phase of The Underline have been submitted to Miami-Dade County for review, with the first phase now nearing completion.
The second phase will run for 2.1 miles, starting at Southwest 13th Street in Brickell and ending at Southwest 19th Avenue in Coconut Grove.
There will be a bicycle and pedestrian path, along with landscaping.
It will connect to the Underline’s first phase and the Miami River Greenway, creating the “Miami Loop,” a safe network of walking and bicycle paths.
Total cost of the second phase is estimated at $18 million. The State of Florida will contribute $8.6 million, Miami-Dade $8 million, with the balance from the City of Miami.
Two virtual meetings where the public is requested to provide input have been scheduled by the Miami-Dade County Department of Transportation and Public Works. The first is December 9.
James Corner Field Operations is designing the project.
