Despite continually dropping number of arrests during the weekend, despite having a new police chief, and despite a recent racism scandal in the department, Miami Beach is once again turning itself into a mini-police state during Memorial Day weekend this year. The traffic loops, barricades, and checkpoints are all coming back. 

Here's the basic rundown on the city's plans: 
  • Ocean Drive will be closed to cars from 7 a.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Tuesday
  • Collins and Washington Avenues will function as a traffic loop from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. on Friday through Monday nights, with Collins handling northbound traffic and Washington traveling southbound traffic. No street parking will available on the streets from Fifth Street to Lincoln Road. 
  • Many areas will be closed of to residents only, and they may be asked to show ID proving their Miami Beach residence, that includes residential areas and parts of Alton Road. 
  • Barricades will be set up to keep visitors out of residential areas. 
  • The Venetian Causeway will only be open to residents. 
  • License plate scanners will be set up on the off ramps of the Julia Tuttle and MacArthur Causeways. 
  • DUI checkpoints will be set up on the causeways from 7 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. on Saturday morning. DUI saturation patrols will also be in full effect throughout the weekend.
