Construction to force new route for 2017 Miami Springs Fourth of July parade

This year's Miami Springs Fourth of July parade will take a slightly different route due to construction along Westward Drive.

The city recently embarked on a new bike path project that includes adding sidewalks and landscaping in an area that drew paradegoers for decades.

The new route will start in front of the Miami Springs Baptist Church, 378 Westward Dr., and end at Miami Springs Golf & Country Club, 650 Curtiss Pkwy.

If you would like to participate in the city's Fourth of July parade, call 305-805-5000.
