|January 2014 (25.78000, -80.18333) Port Causeway Bridges|
Just south of MacArthur Causeway is the curvaceous Port Causeway and its neighboring railway and highway bridges connecting Miami to the Port of Miami.
The Port Blvd Bridges (FDOT #875000 and 875001) are parallel cast-in-place prestressed concrete box girder bridges that were built in 1991. The superstructures are supported on flared single column bents with bearings. A longitudinal joint is between the two bridges. The bridges are 16 span 2521 ft long bridges that slowly rise and fall to provide a shipping channel next to the movable spans on the adjacent bridges.
The Rickenbacker Causeway is about a mile to the south but I didn't get a chance to photograph it. That bridge, the bridges across south Biscayne Bay, and all the bridges connecting the Florida Keys will have to wait for another trip to Florida.
