After weeks of construction, the Venetian Causeway is permanently open once more, on schedule.
Pedestrians, cyclists and drivers were able to cross the bridge starting at 6 p.m. Wednesday. The bridge that connects Rivo Alto Island and Belle Isle was closed for repairs the last six weeks. It was temporarily reopened twice: for Art Basel in November and Christmas and Hanukkah weekend.
Repair work to the motors, brakes, switches and wiring of the drawbridge had been scheduled to continue until Thursday.
