Key Biscayne Village Officials Look Into Barrier To Separate Bicyclists From Drivers on Rickenbacker

It costs drivers $1.50 to get onto the Rickenbacker Causeway. Should bicyclists have to pay to get on the causeway, too? One Key Biscayne Village councilmember has floated that idea, as officials look into a physical barrier to separate drivers from the bicycle lane.

Four bicyclists were injured Saturday morning when a car struck their biking group in the northbound lanes of U.S. 27 near Weston, according to Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue.

At 8:44 a.m., paramedics responded a report of a multi-bicycle crash with injuries on U.S. 27, north of Griffin Road.

The four injured cyclists were taken to Broward Health Medical Center, according to sheriff’s spokeswoman Dani Moschella. One patient was taken by helicopter while the others were taken by ambulance.
