Light Rail Project May Come Soon In Miami Beach
Mayor Phillip Levine of Miami Beach has authorized the City Commission to develop a light rail system that will allow its citizens to move around the city efficiently. Another goal of this project is to reduce cars running around the city's roads.
After years of discussion regarding the pros and cons of improving Miami Beach's mass transit system, it seems that it is finally advancing with a proposed wireless streetcar light railway system. Once the system is built, it will provide mass transportation up and down South Beach Florida. More importantly, it will permit convenient transportation from the downtown area to the beach area via the MacArthur Causeway.
Long-time residents of Florida may still remember similar undertakings surrounding the 1980 Miami Metrorail Project. Regardless of the long wait of Florida residents, still there is reason for a celebration.
Mayor Phillip Levine of Miami Beach, FL, said in a press release that he is happy to report that after decades of discussions, the city government has finally taken the first step in making the dream of providing better public transport systems closer to reality. The mayor and the Miami Beach Commission authorized the city to design a wireless streetcar light rail system that will enable visitors, residents and businessmen to move around the city efficiently and at the same time reduce traffic caused by cars on the road.
Eventually, the system will be connecting the City of Miami to the City of Miami Beach. Commuting between the two cities will be a lot faster, safer and convenient. Phase one of the project will consist of a two-way connection to Washington Avenue and 5th Street, which will be known as the South Beach Component.
Phase two will be taking its place along 17th Street and Alton Road that complements Downtown Miami's cross-bay route. Future plans include routes along the Julia Tuttle Causeway, which will be connecting Midtown Miami and the beach area and the Miami International Airport.
