Two bike paths to link up at Dadeland

Construction began this week to connect the M-Path and the South Dade Trail, closing the oft-lamented Dadeland Gap. The earthmovers started making room for realigned parking at the Dadeland South train station, so the M-Path extension can follow the lot's eastern side between Kendall Drive and Datran Boulevard. This work will aid riders in crossing busy Kendall Drive and avoid the homeless hangout where Metrorail parkers exit onto Kendall.

Closing the Dadeland Gap has been an advocacy project of Green Mobility Network since early this year. Congratulations to us all for this welcome progress.
