The business improvement committee of the MiMo district are interested in rethinking the purpose and function of their main thoroughfare - Biscayne Boulevard.



   The first option is the most economical alternative for the 
district.  With pinching the travel lanes and only have a 
left-turning lane for intersections, the addition of parking lanes 
will help business and slow down traffic.


    The second option will replace the left-turning lane with
a median throughout each block, therefore using the left 
turning lane when appropriate - at important intersections.

    The third option is thought of as the "dream alternative" with 
both the median of the second alternative, and the on-street 
parking of the first alternative.
