Miami-Dade County, Florida Bridges: Port Causeway Bridges

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.
