The Venetian Causeway crosses Biscayne Bay between Miami on the mainland and Miami Beach on a barrier island in south Florida. The man-made Venetian Islands and non-bridge portions of the causeway were created by materials which came from the dredging of the bay. The Venetian Causeway follows the original route of the Collins Bridge, a wooden 2.5mi long structure built in 1913 by John S. Collins and Carl G. Fisher which opened up the barrier island for unprecedented growth and development.By using our Miami trip site , you can arrange your visit to Venetian Causeway and other attractions in Miami.
The causeway has one toll plaza (administered by the Miami-Dade County Public Works department) on Biscayne Island, the westernmost Venetian Island. The toll for an automobile is $1.75 (US).
The causeway has two bascule bridges.
At the Downtown/Western Beginning of the causeway travelers are greeted by two columns vertically saying "VENETIAN WAY" along with a sign indicating that there is a weight limit.
At the South Beach/Eastern Terminus, drivers must choose whether to go north onto Dade Boulevard or eastbound onto 17th Street to Ocean Drive, Collins Ave/A1A, Lincoln Road, City Hall, The Convention Center, Jackie Gleason Theater and the beach.

Venetian Causeway Reviews
Rent some bikes and cycle over the Causeway. Busy spot with a lot of very expensive houses. Recommended more »
É uma rota alternativa de quem vai de Biscayne Boulevard para Miami Beach. Não é nada demais e necessariamente tem que pagar pedágio com o Sunpass. Se vc não tiver esse passe, pagará multa. more »It's an alternate route from who goes from Biscayne Boulevard to Miami Beach. It's no big deal and you necessarily have to pay toll with the Sunpass. If you don't have that pass, you'll pay a fine.
Nice drive from Miami Beach to Miami. Divert onto a side street and check out the homes. If you are lucky you can see the drawbridge action letting boats through. Then again that stops traffic- for a few minutes. The area is gorgeous.
Great place to walk and ride a bike. Fantastic view.
