Bridge repairs are underway across the Venetian Causeway. For the past 6 months, thousands of bicyclists and pedestrians have been anticipating the re-opening of this critical and scenic corridor connecting Miami Beach to the mainland. Due to the bridge closure, non-motorists have been forced to reroute their east-west commutes across the MacArthur and Julia Tuttle causeways, both high-stress commuter routes offering little protection with cars zooming by at 60+ mph speeds.
Just last week we highlighted a new green bike lane across Miami Beach’s 16th street. The Venetian Causeway bridge repair in another critical component adding to Miami’s 21st century built environment where cars, bikes and peds all benefit from improved accessibility and protection.
