North Miami Boulevard is a road that currently varies between 2, 3, and 4 travel lanes between Geer Street and Raynor Street, with parking allowed in certain sections of the corridor. The posted speed limit is 35 mph. The corridor provides access to the Village Shopping Center for many surrounding neighborhoods. Additionally, Sherwood Park can be accessed via Juniper Street.
The proposed restriping will provide a more consistent cross-section, and allow for bicycle facilities along the entirety of the corridor. It will also help slow traffic speeds. Parking is expected to be retained along most of the corridor.
This bicycle improvement project is funded by a Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) Program Grant through NCDOT.
