Safety Alert : Bear Cut Bridge
One westbound lane reopens, with restrictions, on Key Biscayne’s Bear Cut Bridge (Miami Herald)
"Emergency lane restrictions have been implemented on the Bear Cut Bridge along the Rickenbacker Causeway. The Public Works and Waste Management Department is routing vehicular traffic in a counter flow manner on two lanes of the current eastbound portion of the bridge (toward Key Biscayne). One lane will be used for eastbound vehicular traffic and the other will be used for westbound vehicular traffic (leaving Key Biscayne). This will reduce traffic flow to one vehicular lane in each direction over the Bear Cut Bridge. Eastbound bicyclists in the bike lane are being directed onto the off road path. Westbound bicyclists in the westbound bike lane are unaffected."
If you have any questions or concerns, kindly contact the Miami-Dade Public Works And Waste Management office at (305) 361-2833.
