Enhancing SRTS Along the South Dade Trail Feasibility Study

The feasibility study examined the need for improved bicycle and pedestrian access to public schools in South Miami-Dade along the South Dade Trail and assessed the current Safe Routes to School  (SRTS) program’s capacity to meet these needs. The SRTS program is a funded program aimed at making walking and biking to and from school safe, practical, and enjoyable. The South Dade Trail, spanning from Dadeland to Florida City, connects numerous municipalities which represent some of the fastest growing communities in Miami-Dade County.  The study identified key opportunities for improvement and proposed enhancements along the trail in three phases: Short-Term (3-5 years), Mid-Term (5-7 years), and Long-Term (10+ years).

Annual Report

The Miami-Dade TPO’s 2023 Annual Report details the accomplishments the Miami-Dade TPO Governing Board and staff achieved. Among the many milestones summarized in the report, the most significant accomplishment was the TPO Governing Board’s adoption of the largest Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) in agency history, funded at over $12 Billion in transportation investments over the next five years.

Over $6 billion is programmed for highway/expressway/state roads and arterials, while over $5 billion is programmed for intermodal, transit, seaport, and aviation. The remaining TIP categories include bicycle, pedestrian, trails, and local roads. Read the report to see all TPO achievements in 2023.

Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP)

The UPWP describes transportation planning priorities and activities managed by the Miami-Dade TPO. The program includes specific tasks for the TPO and our planning partners that will be performed every two years. Our current UPWP is being carried out from July 1, 2024 through June 30, 2026, and outlines the planning, projects, budget, and activities that support the comprehensive and multimodal transportation improvement program approved for Miami-Dade County.

Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

The current FYs 2024-2028 TIP specifies transportation improvements for the next five years, and is updated every year as required by federal government regulations. It is a staged multi-year program that sets the priorities of transportation improvement projects with federal, state, and local funding. It contains various categories of improvements including: Highway, Transit, Aviation, Seaport, Non-Motorized, Freight, Private Sector, and Regionally Significant Transportation Projects. It must also contain all transportation projects that receive federal funds.

Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)

The current 2045 LRTP marks a time of transition from the early growth and development patterns that fueled the rise of Miami-Dade County as a global hub as well as the approach to an emphasis on rapid transit, land use, densification, connectivity, multimodal mobility and innovative (non-traditional) financing throughout the long range transportation planning process. The intent and purpose of the 2045 LRTP is to encourage, shape, promote and sustain transportation choices, economic competitiveness, the safe and efficient management, operations and development of a cost feasible intermodal transportation system that will serve the mobility needs of people and freight within the Miami-Dade urbanized area, while reducing transportation-related fuel consumption and air pollution.

Every four years Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) conduct a review of the Miami-Dade TPO’s transportation planning process, as required by law. The Federal Team conducted a site visit with TPO staff on April 13, 2023 that included a comprehensive, interactive discussion explaining the multitude of work products completed and best practices achieved over the last four years. 
The Federal Team and TPO staff communicated with one another what the required regulations were and how each one was successfully accomplished, respectively. A Public Meeting was also held on April 13 that allowed the general public to speak directly with the Federal Team about Miami-Dade TPO’s transportation planning process. 
As a result of this effort, a joint letter from FHWA and FTA was received stating, “…the review determined the existence of a “3-C” metropolitan transportation planning process that satisfies the provisions of 23 U.S.C. 134, 49 U.S.C. 5303/5305, and associated Federal requirements. The Federal Review Team identified five (5) noteworthy practices, no corrective actions, and offers three (3) recommendations to improve the current planning process.…This certification will remain in effect until August 2027.”
