USGBC Miami Presents: An Exclusive Transit Tour of the Underline & GREENworking

400x221Underline_BrickellNext Wednesday, August 10, the U.S. Green Building Council Miami is hosting a presentation of the Miami’s planned Underline Linear Park from a unique perspective – one of the elevated MetroRail trains that run above the proposed park location.

The Underline is a vision to transform the land below Miami’s Metrorail into a 10-mile linear park, urban trail, and canvas art. It will stretch from the Miami River to Dadeland South Station and become an iconic and world-class urban trail.

Meg Daly, the project’s founder, will narrate the southbound leg of the ride, describing plans for each segment of the park. She will talk about how her vision for this park grew from an idea she had while traveling on the MetroRail with two broken arms in 2013 to being very close to the start of construction on “Brickell’s Backyard” just three years later.

On the return trip, we will hear about the MetroRail elevated train itself, including upcoming plans for it and other public transit in Miami-Dade County. EasyPasses have been generously provided by the Transportation and Public Works department.

After the Underline MetroRail tour, everyone will head over to a local venue at Mary Brickell Village for some GREENworking and refreshments.

Space is limited, so REGISTER for your spot now!
