Pack Light for the Corporate Run

Miami Police request that if you’re taking part in the Corporate Run Miami tomorrow evening, you not bring knapsacks, gym bags, and the like. Just bring what you really need for the walk/run event starting from downtown Bayfront Park. Maps and timetables are provided here to help you out. If it’s available where you are, Metrorail will be the best way in and out of downtown. Just be patient about the crowds. Good luck, everyone!

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.
