On September 14, 2018, the Miami-Dade Commission voted unanimously to approve the $25 million purchase of the abandoned FEC corridor for conversion into the “Ludlam Trail,” a linear park for biking, hiking and trail running.
Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces is performing a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study for the 5.6-mile-long Ludlam Trail Corridor from SW 80th Street to 400 feet north of NW 7th Street, generally following the north-south alignment of what would be NW / SW 69th Avenue, within the former Florida East Coast (FEC) Railway right-of-way. The project is located in unincorporated Miami-Dade County and the City of Miami. The purpose of the Ludlam Trail is to provide a new shared-use trail that will include safe, dedicated, direct pathways for walking, running, and cycling; to encourage active lifestyles and the use of green, non-motorized modes of transportation; and to enhance overall connectivity and accessibility between schools, parks, transit stops and residences, workplaces, and shopping.
