The Atlantic Greenway Network Master Plan and Dade Boulevard Bike Path Project will be presented at a community workshop at 6 p.m. Aug. 30.
The presentation takes place in the Community Room at the Miami Beach Police Department, 1100 Washington Ave.
Residents, business owners, and neighborhood and business associations are invited to attend and provide input for the projects.
The Atlantic Greenway Network is being designed to promote alternative transportation and community enhancement in Miami Beach’s South, Middle and North Beach neighborhoods.
According to the city, the goals are to increase safety for pedestrians and bicyclists, diminish gaps while improving network connections, and establish future bikeways.
The Dade Boulevard Bike Path project will run adjacent to Dade Boulevard from Bay Road to 23rd Street and will be designed to extend the existing Venetian Causeway bikeway to destination points within Miami Beach.
It is conceived as a major east-west connector bicycle-pedestrian trail that will improve connections to places such as City Hall, the Convention Center, the Jackie Gleason Theater and the Beachwalk.
