The Brickell Avenue Bridge actually crosses over the Miami River just before it empties into the Intercoastal Waterway in Miami Beach, Florida. The bridge is decorated with sculptures, sconces, and a pretty tender house. It's a bascule bridge built in 1995 that replaced a 64 year old structure. It was recently widened to three lanes in each direction but it still gets backed up with traffic during rush hour. The bridge has a higher vertical clearance and the river was dredged so it doesn't have to open quite so often.
