Downtown Miami Weekend Traffic – Ultra Music Festival, Taste of Brickell

The weekend of March 24 and March 25 will bring over 200,000 people to the Downtown Miami area. With huge events including Ultra Music Festival and the Miami Taste of Brickell Food and Wine Festival, the streets will be packed.  Throw in performances at local venues including the Adrianne Arsht Center and American Airlines Arena, plus the Sony Ericsson Open happening in neighboring Key Biscayne and there’s bound to be traffic confusion.

Luckily, Met 1 residents live in the downtown Miami and can take advantage of either walking to events or utilizing public transportation with ease.  Due to the increase in traffic, the Metrorail and Metromover systems will run until 2:00am.
