All lanes of the Venetian Causeway were back open on Tuesday morning after reports of a gas leak on Monday afternoon, according to the city of Miami Beach.
Both eastbound and westbound lanes were closed, and no one was allowed off the Venetian Islands — including the Venetian Islands’ residents. Later in the night, the causeway was patirally reopened, with residents able to get to their homes.
According to NBC 6, officials said that a construction crew broke a main gas line. The gas company was on-site trying to repair the damages.
