Downtown traffic prepares for Ultra’s second weekend

Ultra Music Festival is back on Friday for its second consecutive weekend.

While throngs of crowd-surfing, EDM-loving partiers head downtown to Bayfront Park, Miami police will be assisting with traffic control.

Starting at 10 a.m. Friday., traffic will be rerouted to ease congestion downtown. All southbound traffic along Biscayne Boulevard will be detoured at Northeast Fourth Street, west to Second Avenue and continue south from there.

All northbound traffic along Biscayne Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes and shifted to the southbound lanes at Southeast First Street. It will continue north until Northeast Fourth Street, where drivers will be shifted back to the regular northbound lanes.

Gates open at 3 p.m. Friday. Ultra will continue through Sunday night.
