Brickell Mobility - Peanut Roundabout

As Brickell continues to densify with Millions of square feet of office, hotel, commercial, and residential under construction and development, additional public transit and micro-mobility options via urban design infrastructure will be critical to keep the movement of people and goods and enhance the car-optional lifestyle. This project applies proven road design concepts allowing for safe, sustainable, and efficient movement of all road users will move us toward numerous stated policy goals and increased economic resilience.
