Miami-based architect Bernard Zyscovich has unveiled an expanded, bolder design for his Plan Z, a proposal to create a linear park and network of protected bicycle lanes along the length of the Rickenbacker Causeway to Key Biscayne. They're calling it Rickenbacker Park. New renderings show a shifting of the causeway roadbed on Virginia Key to accomodate a ten acre park, with greenery and a broad bicycle path, an iconic switchback-style ramp descending from the causeway bridge, and a 'grand entrance' created by a three-sided bicycle and pedestrian bridge linking to Alice Wainwright Park, South Miami Avenue, Brickell Avenue, and the Underline.
