Flow through the S-12s is still "above average" for early July.
|Hydrograph showing discharge through the four S-12 structures from 2015 to present. The dotted white line shows the long-term median and the blue line the recent few years. The S-12s are closed each winter and spring per regulatory criteria.|

the new bridges being built on the Tamiami Trail
As for when the S-12A and B will open, I suspect later this month.
