Brace Yourself For Severe Traffic This Weekend

To no one’s surprise, Miami is one of the country’s most traffic-ridden cities, a testament to its fast population growth and vibrant community life. This weekend alone is a strong reminder of how this energetic city can catch drivers off-guard with its many events.

First there is the Miami Open, one of the biggest tennis tournaments in the world. With thousands of spectators congregating at Key Biscayne, many cars will be heading south on I-95 and north on U.S. 1 to get to the Rickenbacker Causeway leading to the island. So unless you are a tennis fan, you may want to avoid driving on these areas.

Then there is Ultra, one of the world’s most popular electronic music events, which is significantly re-routing traffic in the downtown area: until 6 a.m. Monday, Biscayne Boulevard is northbound-only between SE First and NE Fourth Streets, while southbound Biscayne Boulevard traffic is rerouted west at NE Fourth, towards NE Second Avenue. Even the side streets are sure to get full as people try to pile into the comparatively few lanes that remain.

Finally, there is the monthly ritual of Critical Mass, where a group of cyclists from across the city will meet at Government Center downtown at 6:45 p.m. to begin their ride west. The group will move through Little Havana along Flagler Street, then go south on NW 22nd Avenue, continuing west on Eight Street towards West Miami. From there the ride heads back north to Flagler and rides east all the way back to downtown.

In short, brace yourself for a lot of traffic. Most importantly, be careful out there – to yourself and your fellow drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians.
