Venetian Island Bridge Closer


Effective June 1, 2015

Effective Monday, June 1, 2015, Miami-Dade County will close the Venetian Causeway for essential repairs to the west bridge, to be completed early 2016.


The east bridge will be closed to marine traffic to allow motorists to be able to access and depart from the Venetian Causeway.


The City is working closely with Miami-Dade County and the City of Miami to ensure the safety of residents and tourists. During the construction process, use the MacArthur or Julia Tuttle causeways to travel to and from Miami Beach.
