"At the intersection of architecture and public health is Plan Z for Miami, a not-for-profit organization founded with the purpose of restoring safety and vitality to South Florida’s most preferred waterfront destination spot for exercise and recreation: Rickenbacker Causeway.

Plan Z for Miami seeks to transform this outdated, dangerous, single use infrastructure into a world class, multi-modal recreational asset that promotes physical activity, health and well-being while in a natural and safe environment. The concept for Plan Z for Miami was generated in response to the continuing deaths of cyclists on the Rickenbacker Causeway in Miami-Dade county.

Plan Z’s goal is to help minimize cycling risks while providing uninhibited access to clean air and exercise in a safe, scenic environment while also taking into account future bridge replacement and the potential for sea-level rise."
