Wynwood will soon have Miami’s first true shared street — a “woonerf.” Inspired by the Dutch, Miami commissioners approved a contract with a Brooklyn firm to transform the Northwest Third Avenue right-of-way between Northwest 29th Street and 25th Street — located next to the famous zebra-striped Wynwood Building. Woonerfs typically include planters, landscaping and bollards to slow down drivers in order to include pedestrians and bike riders in the mix. See more of the proposed plans in the Miami Herald.
