New App Helps Miami Drivers Avoid Traffic From Bridge Closures

Here’s some good news for Miami area drivers.

A new website and app from Bridge Forecast gives local Miami commuters real-time estimates of when the bridges along the Miami River will go up – hopefully helping drivers avoid backups, long traffic lines and the frustration that goes with it all.

The app gives drivers a notification so they may be able to take detours if possible and avoid added traffic. This is great for people who are on the streets of Miami everyday and are always looking to cut their drive time. One ripple effect could be a reduction in car accidents as less time spent in the car means less opportunities for fender benders, wrecks and pileups!
