Traffic in Brickell area to be disrupted Saturday

Late night clubbers heading to the thriving Mary Brickell Village might need to travel a different route to popular venues like Blue Martini and Blackbird early Saturday morning.

Southeast 10th Street will be closed because of cement pouring at a luxury condo project at 1010 Brickell Ave., projected to be completed by the first quarter of 2016.

More than 500 trucks will be pouring cement nine feet thick into the site starting at 1 a.m. Saturday.

Construction managers from Moss and Associates estimate that the project will last between 12 and 14 hours, as one truck will pour concrete every 1.6 minutes.

The cement trucks will start lining up at 14th Street at midnight, and will be escorted up Miami Avenue, eight at a time, by Miami Police.

Bus routes that typically run on Southeast 10th Street will be temporarily rerouted, but the Metromover will continue to run as normal.
