Pedestrian bridge

Good news for UM students heading back to class: The pedestrian overpass bridge structure, located at the intersection of South Dixie Highway and Mariposa Court (next to the University Metrorail Station) is now open.

Pedestrians crossing US1 now have a safer access to both sides when walking through the busy intersection. Students lobbied for the construction of the pedestrian bridge after a freshman was struck and killed by a car while crossing in 2005.

Miami-Dade County is planning a dedication ceremony onsite for Wednesday, September 13, at 10 a.m.
