Metromover Brickell Loop closing early for station renovations

Early closure needed for renovation work at the Eighth Street Metromover station

MIAMI (July 23, 2015)

In order to continue on-going renovations to the Eighth Street Metromover Station, the Metromover Brickell Loop will be closing early, at 11 p.m., on Sunday, July 26 and Monday, July 27, 2015.

The early closures will only affect the Brickell Loop. The Omni and Inner loops will continue to run regular service until midnight.

Miami-Dade Transit apologizes for the inconvenience; however, this closure is necessary in order to complete the Eighth Street Station renovations. The improvements include updates to better access the station from the ground, including a new elevator, escalators, and stairs.
