Talk of “infrastructure” may be one of the few things—if not the only thing—that comes close to uniting Democrats and Republicans at the moment.
The Underline will transform the land underneath the southern half of Miami’s Metrorail into a 10-mile linear park, urban trail, and living art destination.
Currently in the design, advocacy, and procurement phase, The Underline will serve as a gateway to adjacent communities by tapping into the unique identities of each adjoining neighborhood and by providing distinctive places for programs relevant to each community. The project will also offer improved access north, south, east, and west, as well as an off-road safe haven to improve walking and biking safety. Inspired by South Florida and the Miami region, The Underline will become a significant social and civic spine for the area that will foster community, enhance value, and encourage recreation and healthy living. It will facilitate connectivity and social exchange, connecting people to their surroundings and each other.
