Traffic double-play: Marathon Sunday morning, Alton Road flyover closure starting Sunday night

Belle Isle Blog loves the Miami Marathon, and our team will be out cheering the runners and snapping photos before dawn to share with all of you.

But we also want to remind Belle Isle and Venetian residents that with the race comes a Sunday morning traffic shutdown that begins about 6 a.m. and lasts as late as 10 a.m. So if you are making plans for brunch — or you need to get off the Beach early — either plan to walk or work around the timeline.

Our best advice, as always, is plan to cheer the runners!

Adding to our traffic trauma this weekend: The flyover bridge from eastbound MacArthur Causeway to northbound Alton Road will be closed starting on Sunday night through through Thursday while the contractor performs a paving operation and conducts bridge work.

Most of us don’t travel this way, but if you do — or your visiting plan to come this way — warn them to avoid the problem.
