Public Works and Waste Management Traffic Advisory for the Rickenbacker Toll Plaza and Bear Cut Bridge

(MIAMI, March 28, 2014) – Beginning on Monday March 31, 2014 and ending on or around Friday April 11, 2014, two lanes at the Rickenbacker Toll Plaza (lanes 5 and 6) will be closed to traffic as the Public Works and Waste Management Department (PWWM) begins demolition of the existing lane separator and resurfacing of the lanes to prepare for the installation of SunPass equipment. During the demolition and resurfacing, six toll lanes will be open at all times. 

Beginning Monday, April 14, 2014, lanes 5 and 6 will be closed during weekdays for equipment installation. During weekends, PWWM will re-open lanes 5 and 6 so that all eight (8) lanes are operational.

On March 31, 2014, nightly lane closures for the Bear Cut Bridge Project will resume from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. These lane closures will occur every night through June 16, 2014.  There will be one vehicular lane available in each direction.
