Attend the SMART Implementation Plan Charrettes – South Dade Transitway Corridor
Transit supportive land use plays a critical role in the success of major rapid transit investments. The Miami-Dade TPO is now examining this interrelationship to complement the SMART Plan, which is intended to help achieve community goals though the integration of transportation land use planning and development of strategies. The ultimate purpose of Land use Planning & Visioning Planning is to develop a Land Use Scenario Plan for each of the six SMART Plan corridors. This exercise will provide the technical basis for the development of transit supportive land uses for the six corridors. Two (2) series of charrettes will be conducted for each of the six corridors. The first corridor charrette series will be conducted to assist in the scenario development exercise for the task associated with Land Use Scenarios Development and Testing. The second corridor charrette series will be held as part of the corridor visioning work.
Attend the first series of charrettes for the South Dade Transitway Corridor.
Bike Friendly Miami-Dade Plan
The Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) is pursuing a Bicycle Friendly Community SM designation from the League of American Bicyclists (LAB). Since the 1990s, the LAB has been administering the Bicycle Friendly AmericaSM (BFA) program. The BFA provides any American community (BFCSM), business (BFBSM), and university (BFUSM) with the opportunity to obtain an official Bicycle Friendly designation by submitting an application to the LAB. Applications are evaluated and scored by internal LAB staff and local bicycle advocates within the applicant’s community. Bicycle Friendly designations range from Bronze to Diamond and last for 4 years. Applicants that do not receive a designation may receive an Honorable Mention.

Miami River Tunnel Feasibility Study
The Miami-Dade TPO commissioned this study from a long-term solution perspective to examine the feasibility of a tunnel facility under the Miami River. This report documents the investigation of the feasibility of constructing a tunnel facility connecting Brickell Avenue and Biscayne Boulevard under the Miami River in Downtown Miami. Such a tunnel would provide relief to traffic using the Brickell Avenue bridge, and lessen the severity of congestion near the bridge. The specific focus of the study was to identify alternatives that were technically feasible in regard to geometric alignment and construction method. While the study touches upon environmental and traffic circulation elements associated with a tunnel in this area, those elements were limited in their scope. The primary mission was to develop conceptual tunnel configurations that could be implemented, and that could be further investigated in subsequent more detailed studies.
Optimizing NOMI Express Routes, Connections, and Technology Study
This City of North Miami MGP study, consisting of six tasks, examined opportunities to link intra- and intercity transportation through a comprehensive service and operations analysis of existing routes. This resulting result recommends changes based on local needs, an on-board survey in January/February 2017, and a review of technology options available to enhance local service. Implementation of new technology and the recommended route alternatives will increase system efficiency and help North Miami in creating a better transit system for its residents and visitors.
SW 127th Ave Connector Study
The SW 127th Ave Connector Study was done to expand one of the recommendations of the SW 152nd St Mobility Solutions study that was completed earlier this year. The purpose of this study, commissioned by the TPO, is to investigate options for the connection of SW 127th Avenue at the railroad. The analysis is undertaken at a conceptual level of detail.
