For years local cyclists have expressed safety concerns over the existing narrow and poorly marked bicycle lanes on Crandon Boulevard, one of the more popular cycling routes in South Florida. It appears that on Monday, July 13th Miami-Dade County PWWM will finally begin work on the Crandon Boulevard milling and resurfacing project, a project which was delayed due to the emergency rehabilitation needed on the Bear Cut Bridge in late 2012.
The traffic lanes on Crandon Boulevard between Crandon Marina and Calusa Circle will be narrowed from 12' to 11' to discourage speeding and simultaneously adding a 2' buffer to the existing bike lanes. The bicycle lanes will be painted green (intersections will include peg-a-tracking) and Miami-Dade PWWM will also install vibratory lines (rumble strips) to alert drivers moving into the bicycle lane. Most of the work is expected to take pace between 8pm and 5am and should be completed in December.
The project is located along Crandon Blvd. from the Crandon Park Marina to Calusa Circle in Miami-Dade County Commission District 7. This project has been initiated to improve the roadway surface, driving conditions and enhance existing bicycle facilities along the Causeway. The scope of work includes the following: milling, resurfacing, signing and pavement markings to include green pavement and vibratory lines.
Construction is scheduled to begin on July 13, 2015 and is anticipated to be completed in December 2015.
*The construction schedule above is weather permitting.
Methodology and Efforts:
All efforts are being made to minimize the impact from construction activities to area residents, schools, businesses and motorists. The area will be restored to its original condition immediately upon the completion of construction activities. The restoration activities will address any areas impacted by the project, such as grassy areas, sidewalks and others items affected by the construction.
If you have any questions or require additional information, please contact Mr. Frank Calderon, Communications Manager, Public Information and Outreach Division, at 305-375-4815 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
