The Department of Transportation and Public Works will host
public meetings on the Beach Corridor Rapid Transit Project

MIAMI (July 24, 2017)

The Miami-Dade County Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) has scheduled two public meetings to introduce the Beach Corridor Rapid Transit Project. The public meetings will be held on the following dates and locations from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

  • Tuesday, July 25, 2017, at the Culmer Community Action Center, 1600 NW 3rd Ave., Miami, FL 33136
  • Thursday, July 27, 2017, at the New World Center, 500 17th St., Miami Beach, FL 33139

The Beach Corridor is one of the six rapid transit corridors in the Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit (SMART) Plan, and the corridor will connect the Miami Design District with the Miami Beach Convention Center via the MacArthur Causeway. The Beach Corridor Rapid Transit Project will examine several rapid transit systems to connect centers of population, tourism and economic growth in Miami-Dade County. Various modes, technologies and alignments will be evaluated, which may result in one or multiple rapid transit options that may be implemented along the corridor.

For more information, please contact the DTPW Public Information Officer Karla Damian by telephone at 786-469-5420, or by email at kdamian@miamidade.gov.
