Miami-Dade has completed an environmental study for a rapid transit connection between downtown Miami and Miami Beach.
The Draft Environmental Assessment is required in order to satisfy the National Environmental Policy Act.
The study covers the Beach Corridor Trunkline from the existing Metromover system in Downtown Miami to 5th Street and Washington Avenue in the City of Miami Beach.
Separately, the county has completed the Draft Categorical Exclusion (DCE) document for the Miami Design District Extension.
A DCE was assumed as the NEPA document for the Design District extension, but additional studies will now be required to complete the NEPA process in 2023, the county says.
The county will hold a public meeting on the Beach Corridor on August 9.
Current plans are for a monorail system to Miami Beach, and a Metromover-type system to the Design District.
