UPDATE: Fifty-eight East Coast Greenway signs have been installed along the South Dade Trail (busway path) by maintenance crews from Miami-Dade Transit. We’re acquiring additional signs to mark the northern part of the trail as well as the connecting M-Path.

The first East Coast Greenway signs in the Miami area were installed August 15 on the South Dade Trail at SW 211th Street, near Southland Mall and the South Dade Government Center. The signs, bearing the Greenway’s double pine tree emblem, were acquired by Green Mobility Network as part of its advocacy for local trail expansion. Initial funding for the signs was provided by a Kodak Grant from The Conservation Fund. A grant from Whole Foods Markets will pay for the rest.
So far the Greenway’s Miami-area sections are the South Dade Trail from Florida City to Dadeland, and the M-Path from there to the Miami River — 31 miles in all. The East Coast Greenway Alliance is working with the City of Miami toward designation of a stretch through Bayfront Park and up to the Venetian Causeway. The greenway is a nearly 3,000-mile path for walkers and bicyclists, extending from Key West to Calais, Maine, on the Canadian border. For ECG information, click here.
