The bridge connecting West Avenue south of the Collins Canal with the smaller section of the street that cuts through Sunset Harbour is finally done. The connection gives Sunset Harbour another link to the heart of South Beach, although it does add more concrete and asphalt to an area that already feels overwhelmed with roads.

The combination of the canal, Dade Boulevard, Alton Road, and the other arterials nearby have always cut off pedestrians in Sunset Harbour from the rest of South Beach. Walking from there to Lincoln Road has never been a great experience.

I’ve been following bridge construction, yes, by foot.
