There are further developments concerning the Bird Road crossing on the M-Path that I wrote about a couple of weeks ago. At least three individuals reached out to the project manager at the Florida Department of Transportation after bicyclists voiced worry that a planned turn lane off U.S. 1 would make the crossing even more difficult for path users than it is now. As a result, FDOT has undertaken to improve the crossing -- something that path users have been wanting for years. So hurrah, this could be progress. Details here as they become available.
Meanwhile, say thanks to county bicycle-pedestrian coordinator David Henderson, to Miami bike coordinator Collin Worth, and to the staff of County Commissioner Carlos Gimenez, who patiently listened to our concerns.
