A major roadway connecting mainland Miami-Dade County to Bal Harbour has reopened following a brief closure this morning.
The Broad Causeway Bridge was closed for repairs and has since been reopened for vehicular traffic. Maritime traffic will resume under the bridge tomorrow.
The town government of Bal Harbour approved a restoration project costing nearly $11.5 million back in 2014.
The nearly 70-year-old structure, which spans six miles and connects Biscayne Boulevard to the northeastern islands of Bay Harbor as well as the Bal Harbour Shops, was declared structurally obsolete in 2013 by the Florida Department of Transportation according to the Miami Herald.
