MacArthur Causeway is receiving a face lift with a deck replacement, upgraded fender system, and complete rehabilitation of the substructure inclusive of its severely damaged beams. Close coordination with the City of Miami Beach has been required to minimize impacts to this high-traffic area, especially due to the numerous required nighttime road closures. Work on the MacArthur Causeway is scheduled to end Summer 2020.
The BPA Team is on-hand providing CEI services as part of FDOT District 6’s Bridge Rehabilitation Grouping. This grouping is ongoing through 2022 and currently includes 13 unique bridge rehabilitation jobs within Miami-Dade County, six of which are currently active on ten different bridges. As Prime on the previous bridge grouping’s contract, not only did we receive a commendable overall contract performance score of 4.0, but we also completed the rehabilitation of Bakers Haulover Bridge.
Did you know that to replace all of Bakers’ 40 bearings the bridge had to be jacked up and down 20 times?!
