I wonder if they (Miami-Dade) ever plan on doing anything with the old railroad track that runs parallel with the 826. I believe it starts near Dadeland Station and runs North between SW 67th Ave and 72nd Ave until you get to the airport. I know that between Sunset and Coral Way, those tracks have been removed and covered with cement. However, the space it runs through would be ideal as Western/suburban N/S Metrorail route. While the tracks run through neighborhoods, there is already unused space suitable for tracks. This would be greatâ€¦a direct route to the airport from Dadeland, not to mention some 826 traffic alleviation. This type of new infrastructure (adding new stations, bridges, etc) would be extremely difficult, and knowing Miami, this would never happen; but I just wanted to know if this had ever been discussed. There is so much unused space sitting where the tracks used to be between houses, along streets, etc.
