The Venetian Causeway is set to reopen on Monday, February 29th after 9 months of construction. The vital thoroughfare connecting Miami Beach to the mainland closed on June 1st of last year and forced cyclists, pedestrians, and motorists onto the busier MacArthur and Julia Tuttle Causeway.
"The project cost nearly $12 million and consisted of the replacement of bridge’s westernmost portion. Approximately 730 feet of superstructure and substructure were removed and replaced with a new complete bridge superstructure and substructure, along with a new approach roadway and lighting. The removed parts of the old bridge were submerged to create an artificial reef."
Plenty of locals are very excited about the reopening of the Venetian Causeway, below are a few activities taking place on Monday in celebration of the event.
