Alton Road flyover at MacArthur Causeway to close for repairs


Belle Isle Blog

The Florida Department of Transportation plans to close the flyover that bring eastbound traffic from the McArthur Causeway north on to Alton Road for repairs.

The closure would begin July 14 and last for a month — ending on Aug. 13.

The Miami Beach City Commission is having a special meeting at 11 a.m. Monday to discuss the closure, which is sure to have a major traffic impact in the Fifth Street area and potentially lead to more traffic over the Venetian Causeway.

The FDOT wants to close the flyover for repair work to the one-lane elevated roadway.
