Bicycle Plan & Network

Bicycle Master Plan

As a community’s population density increases, the number of short trips (those of less than ½ mile) increases. These trips can often times be made as easily by walking or bicycling rather than by driving. As a community becomes more dense, the construction of bicycle and pedestrian facilities as an alternative to automobile travel becomes more important to maintain mobility within the community. The population of Miami-Dade County is expected to exceed 3 million by the year 2025. To meet the transportation needs of individuals who walk or bike for all or a portion of their trip, the Miami-Dade Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is planning for these types of facilities in its transportation plan. Miami-Dade County is also attempting to prepare the county for more of these trips in its Long Range Transportation Plan. The development of a Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan was initially suggested as part of the Village’s original Transportation Master Plan.
