Off-road vehicle riders, ATV and dirt bike enthusiasts might one day have a place to rev their engine and kick up dust

But first, they need the backing of several local, state and federal agencies.

The proposal to use an isolated runway in the Everglades, which was once envisioned to create the largest airport in the world, could now be home to the 54,000 off road vehicle riders registered within 100 miles from the site, according to CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald.

The concept has the backing of Miami-Dade Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz. The county is looking for a cheap and easy way to provide an outlet for the owners of such vehicles. Without a legal place to enjoy them, owners of ATVs and motorcycles often ride illegally on public land or trespass on private property.

“We’re trying to gather them and put them in one location and try to protect the more sensitive areas,” Diaz told the newspaper.
