Doral Subarea Freight Mobility Improvement Plan
Understanding the Project’s Goal
MARLIN developed a freight plan for FDOT District 6 that focused on a study area centered on the City of Doral that encompasses the epicenter of freight and logistics activity for the state of Florida. The study area is 26,000 acres in size and includes the Miami International Airport (MIA) Cargo Area, the Flagler Rail Yard, over 50 Million square feet of warehouse/distribution center facilities, I-75, SR 836, SR 826, Florida’s Turnpike and the FEC and CSX Railroads.
The final recommendations included more than 75 projects that would directly enhance freight movement including 6 projects on FDOT maintained corridors.
Engaging the Industry Experts
As part of this project, MARLIN supported FDOT and the City of Doral in developing and facilitating the West Central Miami-Dade Freight Mobility Summit. National speakers were brought in to share the latest trends/shifts in global trade and to identify strategies for Miami-Dade freight stakeholders to maintain and grow our competitive edge. The speakers were followed by panel discussions between private users and public providers on what the future holds and how to maintain and stimulate economic development and a high quality of living for Miami-Dade County.
