Miami-Dade County Public Works and Waste Management Department to begin minor improvement work near the Bear Cut Bridge

(MIAMI, January 11, 2013) – Residents of and visitors to Key Biscayne should note that the Miami-Dade County Department of Public Works and Waste Management (PWWM) plans minor improvements to the roadways on either side of the Bear Cut Bridge, in order to help traffic flow more smoothly. 

Work will take place exclusively at night, from approximately 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m., with a scheduled starting date of Monday, January 14, 2013.  The work should be completed by Friday, January 18, 2013, subject to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. 

The work includes paving over parts of the median on both sides of the bridge to create a smoother transition for the maintenance of traffic.  Once completed, this work is expected to improve traffic flow onto and off of the bridge.
