A traffic mitigation plan will be implemented on Friday, May 24 through Monday, May 27 beginning at 6 a.m. Traffic will only be allowed to enter Ocean Drive through 13 Street and exit through 5 Street, with no access to any other entry/exit points. On Friday, May 24 through Sunday, May 26 starting at 6 p.m. each evening, Collins and Washington avenues will flow north and southbound, with no east or westbound access except at 5 Street and 16 Street.

Protected residential zones for the Flamingo Park and South of Fifth neighborhoods will be in place each evening from 6 p.m. through 5 a.m. starting on Thursday, May 23 through Sunday, May 26 with barricades in place to restrict cut-through traffic in these residential areas.

Beginning Friday through Sunday evenings at 8 p.m., a traffic mitigation plan will be in place along the 5 Street corridor starting at the east bridge of the MacArthur Causeway and on the Julia Tuttle Causeway. To safely coordinate this effort, there will be a single-lane reduction on both corridors starting at 8 p.m. each evening. In addition, the Police Department will utilize and deploy fixed and mobile License Plate Readers (LPRs) throughout the city.

Additionally, the city’s traffic monitoring and management contractor will monitor major thoroughfares to detect incidents creating congestion based on available resources and equipment, including existing closed-circuit television and portable cameras in the city, the WAZE mobile application, portable variable message signs for traffic/event messaging, and modifications to traffic signal timing as needed to manage congestion. Traffic Monitors will operate 14 hours a day, from 10 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. from May 24-26.

During hours when the traffic mitigation plan is in place, the Miami Beach trolley and Miami-Dade County transit services will operate normally. The Transit App will be updated as needed to reflect service changes and important updates.

Miami Beach Police will be working 13-hour shifts with an Alpha/Bravo staffing configuration. Several local, state and federal law enforcement partners will be assisting MBPD with public safety, including, but not limited to, the Florida Highway Patrol, Miami-Dade County Police and Miami-Dade Schools Police. Miami Beach Fire, Ocean Rescue, Code Compliance, Parking, Public Works, Sanitation, and Parks and Recreation will also have significantly enhanced staffing throughout the weekend.

#Nofilter

Effective January 1, 2023, the City of Miami Beach has banned cigarette smoking and other tobacco products from public beaches and parks as per Ordinance 2022-4509. Fines range from $100 - $500 or up to 60 days in jail.

Up to 98% of cigarette filters are made of plastic fibers, which leads to an estimated 1.69 billion pounds of trash each year and each butt can take up to 10 years to disintegrate.

Let’s all do our part and keep our beautiful beaches clean!
