Causeway construction ramps up Thursday, Friday

Construction workers on Rivo Alto Island guide cars around a detour.

Listen closely and you may hear construction on the Venetian and MacArthur causeways — in stereo.

On the heavily traveled MacArthur Causeway, work related to the Port of Miami tunnel Thursday night will mean one eastbound lane closure from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Friday morning. The closure will happen from the bottom of the bridge to the right turn (for eastbound drivers) at the Parrot Jungle Trail.

On the quieter but residential Venetian, construction related to the three island water main project caused the causeway to be closed Thursday during rush hour on Rivo Alto Island. Cars in both directions were detoured on to residential side streets to cross the island.

Backups weren’t too bad on Thursday. Belle Isle Blog will keep you posted on upcoming closures on both Biscayne Bay crossing routes.
