Streets around the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts were closed Tuesday night by Miami-Dade police.
Officers in the area about 10 p.m. said the closure was because of an “event,” and that the streets would reopen in about an hour. It is possible that the event is connected to military training exercises.
Miami-Dade police sent out a warning Monday that multiple police agencies would provide support for a joint military training exercise somewhere over Miami and elsewhere in the county. The exercise was to include the use of military helicopters.
But police did not give the exact date or time for when the exercises would take place.
Streets around the Arsht Center, just north of the MacArthur Causeway and Interstate 395, remained closed as of 10 p.m.
This is not the first time such training has taken place in Miami. In April 2011, military helicopters buzzed through Brickell, leading to sleepless nights for some people and a lot of griping on social media about it.
