The proposed Ludlam Trail provides a unique opportunity to develop a 6.2-mile multi-use trail through the heart of Miami-Dade County within the former Florida East Coast railway right-of-way. The trail will provide a safe dedicated and direct route for cyclists and pedestrians to schools, parks, work and shopping. The trail can connect more than 34,000 people within a half-mile, walkable service area to five greenways, five schools, four parks and two transit hubs.
The Ludlam Trail Design Guidelines and Standards report provides both specific guidance for the design of the Ludlam Trail and
general guidance for urban trails within Miami-Dade County, including illustrated graphics. It is based on a transparent, methodical
approach to planning an urban trail that includes research of official
documents, evaluation of comparable trails, best practices principles, lessons learned, recommendations
and standards, and design guidelines.
