Good news for cyclists who ride the Venetian Causeway, a highly popular route for recreational bicyclists and commuters alike. The City of Miami Beach is working jointly with the Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation, and Open Spaces Department (PROS) in installing high emphasis green bike lanes along the route. The brightly colored lanes are intended to give better visibility to bicyclists and are made of slip-resistant material so that cyclists don't skid when wet.

Work on the high emphasis green bike lane project began in December and is set to be completed by in January. Length of project is approximately 2.5 miles (5 miles total if including east & west routes).

Also, the West Bascule Bridge will finally be getting a non-slip metal deck plate bike lane over the steel open grate bridge by the end of January. 

The Venetian Causeway is arguably the safest corridor for cyclists riding between Miami Beach and the City of Miami and it's great to see these long overdue improvements to the thoroughfare, particularly on the bridges.
