In a recent article in the Miami Herald, Street Plans’ Principal Tony Garcia expressed interest in utilizing the existing partnership with Miami-Dade County to install low-cost crosswalks and other improvements to enhance accessibility to Miami Springs Circle, a park in Miami Springs. Currently people frequently jaywalk across four lanes of traffic to get to the park because no crosswalks exist.
Tony suggested that “instead of spending five years and millions of dollars, we get it done in months by spending thousands of dollars on low-cost materials. People won’t have to jaywalk anymore and there will be no major harmful impact on traffic flow.”
Street Plans is currently partnering with Miami-Dade County and nonprofit Green Mobility Network through the Miami-Dade Transportation Quick-Build Program, dedicated to making it easier for citizens and municipalities to make meaningful transportation improvements to their communities through Tactical Urbanism.
