Miami Lakes, FL - The Town of Miami Lakes was awarded a $25,000 Public Space Challenge Grant from The Miami Foundation to complete the Miami Lakes MiGlo Trail Project.
Powered by the sun, the Miami Lakes MiGlo Walking and Biking Trail will provide a Glow-in-the-Dark pathway for pedestrians and bicyclists to enjoy! The proposed project will take place on the NW 170th Street recreation and bike trail in Miami Lakes. By painting the asphalt with photoluminescence paint, the path will emit a visually magical solar-powered hue to improve lighting and safety for residents, pedestrians, and cyclists who use this trail at night. Similar glow in the dark paths exists in the Netherlands, Poland, Australia, and Singapore.
The Miami Lakes MiGlo Trail project received support from the Town’s Neighborhood Improvement and Cultural Affairs Committees, Bike305, FDOT Bicycle Helmet Representative, and our social media community. The Town will be seeking proposals for artwork that artistically enhances the existing walking and biking trail and complements the surrounding space.
This project was made possible by the 2019 Public Space Challenge, a program of The Miami Foundation with support from Target.
