Miami Beach intersection at Collins and Sixth closed Monday

Ongoing construction work closed an intersection in South Beach on Monday.

Collins Avenue at Sixth Street is closed in both directions for the the day due to roadwork.

The Florida Department of Transportation says it is almost done with the work along Collins to improve drainage and sidewalks. The department expects the construction to be wrapped up by Thanksgiving.

A traffic alert sent out by the city is advising people to detour at Fifth and Seventh Streets and use alternate routes.
