Slow Streets Pilot Program
With recent Miami-Dade County approval for a pilot program, the City of Miami Beach is introducing Slow Streets in the Flamingo Park neighborhood. During COVID-19, we have seen a nationwide reduction in traffic volumes and with that, a shift in community needs.
The concept of Slow Streets was introduced as a tool to transform residential streets with low traffic volumes into alternate mobility boulevards and shared streets to increase pedestrian and bicycle activity. Slow Streets have been used in other cities affected by the pandemic throughout the United States; the concept consists of taking existing streets and making them one-way or closed to through traffic therefore encouraging more pedestrians and bikes to share the road.
Only LOCAL TRAFFIC is allowed on a Slow Street, below are the rules of the road.
