If you ride the MacArthur Causeway between Miami Beach and Miami, be aware that a westbound lane will be closed for a couple of weeks right next to Parrot Jungle. Miami-Dade Public Works will be constructing a new bus bay on the north side, part of the port bridge-tunnel project. All this is subject to weather, but the closure will be from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on weekdays, except for Labor Day. This might be a good time to switch to the Venetian Causeway, which I think is a safer ride anyway.
