US1 Conceptual Enhancement Plan | Greenline

Miami-Dade County, FL

In 2011 C+R was asked to prepare an enhancement plan for the US1 Corridor paying particular attention to the underutilized land under the existing metrorail.  C+R envisioned this space as a new urban multi-use park traveling the length of US-1 from Brickell to Pinecrest and beyond.  Challenges include:  dangerous intersections, continuity, adjacent uses and their relationship to the corridor, increasing ridership and pedestrian and bicycle safety alongside a heavily traveled roadway.  Based on extensive research C+R developed a plan which proposed a linear park under the metrorail with key pilot projects inclusive of financial and maintenance management strategies. This plan called  “The Greenline” was presented to Miami-Dade County in 2013.
