Dover Kohl and Chael Cooper Participate in ThinkBike Miami Workshop

On Monday, May 2nd, and Tuesday, May 3rd, Marice Chael and Megan McLaughlin participated in ThinkBike Miami, a hands-on bicycle planning workshop hosted by the Royal Netherlands embassy in Washington. The workshop brought bicycle planning experts from the Netherlands to work with local planners, engineers, designers, and bike advocates to create a roadmap for making Miami more bike-friendly. Groups represented at the event included Miami-Dade MPO, the City of Miami, FDOT, planning and engineering consultants, and bicycle advocates. The group designed bike routes to connect Midtown Miami to Downtown, and the Health District to the Venetian Causeway and Downtown. The exchange of ideas was extremely productive and a number of potential projects were brainstormed over the two days. At the end of the event, Jeff Cohen with Miami-Dade County Public Works announced that the County would take many of the schematic plans and street sections produced and begin designing them in more detail.
