MIAMI (CBSMiami) — The Venetian Causeway is finally reopening after months of construction.
The causeway is set to re-open Monday, February 29th after being closed for 9 months.
The closure was part of a $12.4 million renovation project for the bridge that connects the mainland to Biscayne Island.
After a hole opened up on the Venetian Causeway back in 2014, the county declared the repairs an emergency and closed it down.
For months, residents have had to head to Miami Beach and get on the already busy MacArthur or Julia Tuttle causeways.
