M-Path closer to completion

A sizable crew from Community Asphalt is laying pavement today on the M-Path south of SW 80th Street. Most of the work today is between the Dadeland Station shops and the new bridge across the mouth of the Snapper Creek Expressway. There's also a realignment of the path north of SW 67th Avenue, so riders can cross closer to US 1 and be seen from S. Dixie Highway.

The new M-Path Extension extends through Metrorail's Dadeland North Station and alongside U.S. 1 to N. Kendall Drive, then along the fence at Dadeland South Station to connect with the South Dade Trail below Datran Boulevard.

Path improvements at the south station include a crossing island on Dadeland Boulevard, easier access for northbound riders, and a greatly improved ramp into the South Dade Trail that will help riders headed both south and north.
