With the holidays comes even more traffic.
To help ease some of it, the Venetian Causeway’s east drawbridge, which has been closed because of repairs, will temporarily open at 5 p.m. to vehicular, cycling and pedestrian traffic — through 4 a.m. Tuesday.
The bridge, which connects Rivo Alto Island and Belle Isle, has been closed since Nov. 14 — other than a brief opening for Art Basel — to repair the motors, switches, brakes and wiring of the drawbridge.
Work on the project is expected to be complete by Dec. 29. The west bridge remains open.
