Thursday, October 5, 2017 0 Comments

Residents who are interested in helping to improve Miami Lakes’ road infrastructure are invited to join the town’s Transportation Department for a Complete Streets Design Workshop which has been rescheduled to Monday, October 23, from 6 to 8 p.m., at Town Hall, 6601 Main Street.

Complete Streets Initiatives include infrastructure enhancements that implement additional pedestrian and bike improvements to give all users a greater share of the right-of-way. Specific improvements can vary from pavement markings to new physical barriers built between travel lanes and bike pedestrian pathways. Ultimately, the improvements are done to increase safety while not compromising traffic flow.

The recommendations were developed in coordination with the Miami-Dade County Complete Streets Design Guidelines Program. The proposed design guidelines are customized to fit the context of the identified Miami Lakes street typology and are focused on providing multimodal roadway improvements that take into consideration all users.

During the workshop, Town staff will provide an overview of Complete Streets components, present existing conditions of the roadway characteristics within the Town, and present examples of concepts for select corridors.

Residents are encouraged to join the workshop and help improve Miami Lakes’ streets to accommodate all users – pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders and motorists.
