War I flying ace who founded and
presided over Miami-based Eastern
Air Lines. The causeway opened
in 1947 and provides access to
Greater Miami's most prominent
recreational, entertainment
and
educational facilities that include
the Miami Seaquarium, the Miami
Marine
Stadium, Virginia Key
Park, Crandon Park, the Village of
Key Biscayne and Bill Baggs Cape
Florida State Park on the island of
Key Biscayne, among other notable
attractions.
The
Rickenbacker
is
Miami-Dade's
most
cars and bikes - combined with
excessive speeding and intoxicated
drivers - have
contributed
to
Causeway
popular
recreation corridor, attracting
hundreds of thousands of
pedestrians, joggers, walkers and
cyclists each year. However, the lack
of a physical separation between the
multiple fatalities and injuries over
the past 20 years. A report produced
by the National Complete Streets
Coalition found that Florida's biggest
cities - Miami, Jacksonville, TampaSt.
Petersburg and Orlando - are
some of the most dangerous places
to be either a bicyclist or pedestrian
in America. Florida's death rate for
cyclists and pedestrians was found
to be significantly higher than the
national rate. The grim reality of
these numbers was made worse after
learning more about members of the
community who were fatally struck
while riding their bicycles on the
Rickenbacker Causeway - as was
Aaron Cohen.
In February 2012, Cohen was
killed after a driver veered into
the bike lane on the Rickenbacker
Causeway in a lethal hit-and-run.
This
accident
not
only sparked
the " Aaron Cohen Life Protection
Act, " which was a Florida State
measure designed to make
penalties
for hit-and-run drivers
more punitive, but it also catalyzed
a movement of local advocates
fighting to change Miami-Dade's
streets and open spaces.
Bernard Zyscovich is one of
those advocates.
Designing and
Implementing Plan Z
As an architect, urban planner and
lifelong cyclist, Zyscovich launched
Plan Z for Miami with the vision
The completed Plan Z
and Miami LOOP would
deliver safe bicycle and
pedestrian access for all
2.8 million Miami-Dade
residents and more than
16 million annual visitors
to the Rickenbacker
Causeway.
