Miami-Dade commissioners have voted to award a $14.3 million construction contract to build the Brickell Backyard portion of the Underline. The 1/2 mile project will start at the Miami River and will continue through SW 13th Street under the Metrorail and Metromover, helping to bring green vegetation and park space to the dense, urban Brickell neighborhood. Brickell Backyard will feature dedicated pedestrian and bicycle trails, lush landscaping, a gym area with basketball courts and gym equipment, space for group fitness classes and recreational activities, a staging area for concerts and movies, dining areas and a game area with fixed tables and chairs. The project will also include the reconfiguration of the existing bus stations and intersections along the path. Brickell Backyard will be the first portion of the planned 10-mile Underline. Completion is expected in 2020.
