Chase Avenue/W 34th Street Shared Used Path Feasibility Study
The Chase Avenue project is directly related to the implementation of the City of Miami Beach Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan (PBMP) adopted in 2015 and the Miami Beach Transportation Master Plan (TMP) adopted in 2016.
Complex Problems, Innovative Solutions
The Chase Avenue/W 34th Street connection is an important link between the shared use path planned along Alton Road to the Julia Tuttle Causeway connection to the west and to the Prairie Avenue bicycle lanes and sidewalks to the east.
This project is unique and required innovative solutions. The site is located on the north edge of the City of Miami Beach Golf Club and is on a roadway that is a residential street. The MARLIN team, understanding that the community would be opposed to typical 75 foot high nets, recommended decorative features at key locations to protect cyclists and pedestrians from golf balls. All design concepts were prepared consistent with the City of Miami Beach Street Guidelines.
In addition to the protective elements, MARLIN proposed two new “people places” utilizing decorative pavement treatments and public art to create spaces that the community and residents could enjoy at the intersections of Alton Road and Chase Avenue, and Chase Avenue and W 34th Street.
