South Miami Intermodal Transportation Plan

The City of South Miami is holding a neighborhood meeting this Thursday March 20, 2014, from 12pm to 8pm
at the South Miami Community Center (5800 SW 66th Street). The purpose of the meeting is to get input into the City’s bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure. The Friends of the Ludlam Trail encourage everyone to attend and let city leaders know that we support the implementation of the Ludlam Trail.

What is the Ludlam Trail?

The proposed Ludlam Trail is a 6.2-mile multi-use trail through the heart of Miami-Dade County, within the former Florida East Coast railway right-of-way. The trail will connect more than 34,000 people within a half-mile, walkable service area to five greenways, five schools, four parks two transit hubs, and provide a safe dedicated and direct route for cyclists and pedestrians to schools, parks, work and three major shopping areas.

The Friends of the Ludlam Trail is a non-profit coalition dedicated to the implementation of the Ludlam Trail. We represent the thousands of Miami-Dade County residents who want to see the Ludlam trail become an asset for the community as a running, biking, and walking trail. We see the Ludlam Trail project as a way of spurring job creation in our community, realizing immediate value increases for adjacent properties, and achieving a major transportation and recreation connection across the heart of the county.  Please join us!
