The Miami Underline



What is Miami’s Underline System?

A 10-mile, phased project running underneath the Metrorail, planned to connect Brickell to the Dadeland South Metrorail station. This people-first urban trail is set to feature 120 acres of open spaces with restored natural habitats, improved pedestrian and bicycle pathways, recreational facilities, public art installations, and community programs. The public-private partnership is designed by James Corner Field Operations. The project is planned to be completed in 2025.
