FDOT MacArthur Causeway Project
Project Update

Due to Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) construction along the MacArthur Causeway, the City is experiencing intermittent heavy congestion on feeder roads. City staff is working closely with FDOT on measures to mitigate traffic congestion through signal timing, messaging and police enforcement at intersections as needed.  FDOT has informed us that they may need to close streets at any time throughout the day as needed to complete this project as quickly as possible. 

Please find below the updated schedule   of lane closures on MacArthur Causeway westbound bridge:
  • Beginning Tuesday, July 31, 2018 at 10 p.m. there will be 24-hour closures of two-lanes going westbound, through Sunday, September 2, 2018 with full bridge deck replacement on the westbound bridge.

During this time, please avoid using the MacArthur Causeway and seek alternate routes such as the 79 Street Causeway, Venetian Causeway or Julia Tuttle Causeway. 


During this period of time crews will be performing work on both the top and underneath of the bridge. 


The photos below of the underdeck of the MacArthur Causeway bridge show the deteriorating conditions and the urgent need for this rehabilitation project.  This project is expected to last approximately 2 years and will ensure safety for our residents and visitors for years to come.
