William Powell Bridge Expansion Joint Maintenance – August 1, & 2, 2012 (Wednesday & Thursday)

The Miami-Dade County Public Works and Waste Management Department will be performing maintenance repairs to a bridge armor joint on the William Powell Bridge along the Rickenbacker Causeway.

The work will take place on the bridge roadway just west of the apex of the bridge, on the eastbound inside vehicle travel lane (furthest from the dedicated bike lane). The repair will be phased out over two days, starting at 9:00 a.m. and ending at 3:30 p.m., on Wednesday, August 1, 2012 and Thursday, August 2, 2012.

One vehicle travel lane will remain open at all times and the inspection area will be opened up to vehicle traffic at the end of each day. The timing of the work is being scheduled to avoid the rush hour periods; however, motorists may experience traffic delays.
