Miami’s First Tunnel Making Progress; Opening in May
“The tunnel will connect Dodge Island, where the Port of Miami is located, to Watson Island. The tunnel is less a mile long and is 120 feet below sea level at its deepest. There will be an eastbound tube, and a westbound tube – each carrying two lanes of traffic.”
Local site The 305 has a series of photos inside the tunnel that is sure to excite construction enthusiasts and engineers alike, as well as a few maps showing the new route’s alignment below the Port of Miami.
According to reporter Hank Tester: “The project will bring cargo carrying 18-wheelers and cruise ship passengers into the port in a more efficient manner.”
