And a note for commuters re the MacArthur Causeway: According to the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), “As a safety precaution, the right lane along westbound MacArthur Causeway between Alton Road and Terminal Island will remain closed during Art Basel. Due to extensive deterioration to the prestressed concrete beams, the FDOT will leave this area closed until additional investigation can be completed on these beams.” Two westbound lanes will remain open at all times. Eastbound lanes are not impacted. Last week, the City indicated the lane would temporarily open for the art fair. This week, FDOT reversed course and apologized for the “change of plans.”
