The SR 822/Sheridan Street Bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway will be fully for closed for approximately 90 days beginning Monday, June 13, weather and unforeseen conditions permitting. Eastbound traffic will be detoured via US-1, Hollywood Boulevard, or Dania Beach Boulevard. Westbound traffic will be detoured via SR A1A, Hollywood Boulevard, or Dania Beach Boulevard. Access to local traffic and the Anne Kolb Nature Center will be maintained at all times via eastbound SR 822/ Sheridan Street before the bridge.
Project improvements include installing bicycle-friendly/anti-slip walking plates along the bridge’s moveable spans, removing existing curb and adding a 32-inch traffic barrier between the sidewalk and roadway, removing and replacing the outer pedestrian railing, adding new pedestrian gates in each direction, renovating the existing tender house, upgrading electrical and mechanical components, and access platforms on the bridge.
Bridge opening times for marine traffic will be impacted Monday, June 13th through September 2022. The temporary bridge opening schedule is, as follows:
Daily, between 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
One side of the bridge will open on the quarter hour and three-quarter hour. Boaters needing a full opening should provide 4-hour advance notice.
Sunday-Fridays, between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m.
The bridge will be closed. Boaters needing a full opening should provide 24-hour advance notice. Full openings are available only between midnight and 1 a.m.
Friday-Sunday, between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Single-leaf openings will be provided on the quarter and three quarter hour. A full opening will not be provided during this time.
The vertical clearance across both spans will be reduced by 5-feet for the installation of a containment system for the duration of the project.
These timing adjustments are needed in order to complete operations during the full bridge closure, which also begins Monday, June 13 through September 2022, weather and unforeseen conditions permitting. This work is part of the SR 822/Sheridan Street Bridge Rehabilitation Project. Construction began January 22, 2022 and estimated completion date is Late 2022.

HOW IN THE WORLD DID WE GET HERE?
By Eric Glazer, Esq.
Published January 31, 2022
So, I get a call a few weeks ago from a reporter at The New York Times. He was doing a story about the incredible number of condominiums in Miami and how fast they were all built. How the entire skyline on the coast changed dramatically in the past 40 years or so and if it’s possible that The Champlain Towers in Miami was just a freak occurrence, or something that we need to start thinking about regarding all condominiums that were rushed through and given the green light. Is it possible for other similarly situated buildings to start falling down?
The story is somewhat startling but not surprising. It’s a story about greed, out of control construction, tampering with Mother Nature, little to no inspections, rushed through permits, law firms and politicians helping developers and The Florida Legislature turning a blind eye towards all of it.
If you’re living in a building in Miami, this is a must read. If you don’t live in Miami, but are concerned about whether or not your building was built properly, it’s a must read as well. Besides myself, there are politicians, builders, developers and other experts that tell their side of the story in detail. Some of it is shocking.
Because so many turned their backs years ago, no wonder the story is called THE TICKING CLOCK OF MIAMI’S CONDO EMPIRE. You should also know that coincidentally, Robert Lisman, who is the resident from Champlain Towers East, is the producer of our Condo Craze You Tube channel. It’s a long article but again, it’s a must read.
