The Venetian bridge got stuck again Wednesday morning.

The causeway’s east bridge was closed in both directions because of a malfunction.

This was the fourth time the recently repaired bridge has malfunctioned. On Tuesday afternoon, the bridge got stuck in the open position.

The Venetian connects Miami Beach to 17th Street in Miami.

The county closed the drawbridge from mid-November through late December for a $2-million repair job that included work on brakes, motors, switches and wiring. During that time, the bridge was temporarily reopened for Art Basel and for Christmas and Hanukkah weekend.
