Commodore Trail upgrade begins

Bridge site on the Coral Gables WaterwayImprovements are underway at two points along the Commodore Trail, one of Miami’s most popular corridors for runners. The trail, extending from Cartagena Circle in Coral Gables to Wainwright Park in Miami, also has many walkers and some slower bicyclists who avoid the busy roads through Coconut Grove. A big step up for the Commodore will be the new bike and pedestrian bridge across the Coral Gables Waterway. You can see the site preparation, above, just east of LeJeune Road. The bridge is being fabricated offsite for delivery in late July. Closer to downtown, masons are improving the walkway along Bayshore Drive near Aviation Avenue. This is a Miami-Dade public works project but also required Miami and Coral Gables approval.
