The Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) will temporarily close the Venetian East Bascule Bridge to marine traffic from Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2017, through Saturday, Feb. 25th, in order to install bike-friendly grating on the bridge.
 
During the installation of the bike-friendly grating, one lane will be closed on the bridge, but traffic will continue to flow in both directions.

Residents seeking additional information about the bridge closing to marine traffic can send an email to the U.S. Coast Guard at Ruth.A.Sadowitz@uscg.mil or Michael.B.Lieberum@uscg.mil . Residents also can call the U.S. Coast Guard Sector Miami at 305-415-6800.
