Venetian Causeway Bridge Replacement Project
With an initial design life of 50 years, the bridges are moderately to severely deteriorated and have been repaired numerous times. The Causeway has weathered many hurricanes during its long history. As such, Miami-Dade County, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and other agencies and stakeholders, are working together to replace 11 bridges, including the easternmost moveable bridge, along the Causeway.
The design process will take approximately 18 to 24 months to finish. at which time Following design, construction is planned to begin from east to west.
The Department of Transportation Public Works (DTPW) and partners are excited to move this project forward that will make the Venetian Causeway safe for all users, especially as an evacuation route during emergencies.
On April 18, 2023, DTPW hosted a hybrid public meeting to present plans and provide residents and businesses information about the design phase of the project.
