The Bear Cut Bridge – a portion of the Rickenbacker Causeway that links Key Biscayne and Miami – is currently undergoing repairs required to rehabilitate the bridge.

Repairs are anticipated to be completed by June 2014.

The Department has implemented a maintenance of traffic designed to reduce congestion and provide safe travel on the bridge to all motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.

Westbound lanes of Bear Cut Bridge open; eastbound work ongoing

The Bear Cut Bridge’s two westbound lanes are now open. Pedestrians and bicyclists can also use the new 14-foot shared-used path on the northern side of the bridge. The pedestrian path detour on the north side of Bear Cut Bridge will remain in place until the south side is substantially complete.

Eastbound traffic construction and nightly lane closures from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. have resumed. One vehicular lane of traffic will be open in each direction.

West Bridge open to traffic; toll plaza work underway

The West Bridge is open to traffic. The pedestrian path on the west side, underneath the West Bridge, has reopened. 

Now through April 11, two lanes of the Rickenbacker Toll Plaza (lanes 5 and 6) will be closed to traffic as demolition begins on the lane separator and roadway resurfacing occurs in preparation for installation of SunPass equipment.

Up to six toll lanes will be open at all times during this work.
