Forum on the future of the Rickenbacker Causeway. On Thurs., Oct. 30, 2014, Bike Key Biscayne hosted a community forum on the future of the Rickenbacker Causeway that included representatives of the Miami-Dade County Public Works Dept. and Zyscovich Architects as speakers. We have been working closely with County Public Works staff and local cycling groups to find solutions to make the Rickenbacker safer for all users, particularly bicyclists and pedestrians.

We continually monitor improvements for bicycling on the Rickenbacker Causeway. In 2012 we  formed an ad hoc committee focused on the Bear Cut Bridge reconstruction project. Our goal for this committee was to ensure that consideration would be given to bicyclists and pedestrians in all planning and implementation related to the project. We also took the position that at no point during the project would bicyclists and pedestrians be prohibited from using the bridge. Our participation helped to see the bridge project to completion. The bridge now offers 14-foot multiuse paths in both directions for its entire length.
