Inspire Well-Being in Miami (traffic solution)
It's no secret that Miami is overcrowded with disorganized, over populated foot, bike and car traffic. Watch the video for my proposal!
Have you been to Saint Petersburg Florida?
(1) There are many one-way streets to help the flow of traffic.
(2) On 1st Ave N and 1st Ave S there are one-way designated bike lanes separate from traffic lanes and pedestrian side walks (see attached image)
(3) The car lanes, bike lanes, and sidewalks are all divided by medians and foliage.
(4) There is a new elevated toll gateway expressway being constructed connecting Tampa and Saint Petersburg. In my opinion it is genius, especially if they construct it in a way that they are able to add levels in the future. My proposal: the higher the level, the more you pay, the less traffic there is. The lower the level, the less you pay, the more traffic there is. If you did this over all major highways and corridors, you would not only solve the traffic problems in Miami, but you would reduce the ground floor to local traffic. Making space for the suggestion proposed above, which are already in place in St. Pete.
