Wide curb lanes to accommodate bicyclists are included in state plans for the repaving of U.S. 1 (S. Dixie Highway) between SW 168th Street and SW 102nd Street. It doesn't strike me as a good idea because of the speeds I see on that stretch along the west side of Pinecrest and Palmetto Bay. These new lanes would be just a few yards away from the bike route I like to use -- the South Dade Trail, which runs along the Busway.
The plans are being aired Thursday night at St. Louis Catholic Church, 7270 SW 120th St., Pinecrest. The meeting runs from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The Florida Department of Transportation will have engineers present to explain details, answer questions, and hear public comment.
Here are lots more details via the Miami Herald's Neighbors section.
