UPDATE

new look, new vibe, positive response!

The Washington Avenue Business Improvement District (BID) is please to announce great changes for the Avenue.

Following close coordination and planning with the the City of miami Beach, the city has partially closed Washington Avenue to vehicular traffic to create a pedestrian and bicycle boulevard that meets the needs of residents, businesses and visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This new traffic pattern on Washington Avenue between 5 - 16 streets configures the street to allow for vehicle travel on one lane, parking on another and creates a parking protected bicycle lane curbside. Please refer to the image for a visual. Also note that the speed limit throughout the corridor has been lowered to 25 MPH, and Miami-Dade County Transit bus stops will be relocated from Washington Avenue to Collins Avenue starting on Monday, August 3.

This new configuration allows for restaurants in the corridor to expand by using the existing sidewalks and parking lanes, and also aims to activate additional space for walkers, joggers, cyclists, skaters and other outdoor activities.
For more information, please contact:Lauren Firtel, Neighborhood Affairs CoordinatorEmail: laurenfirtel@miamibeachfl.gov3 or at 305.986.6403
