Status Check: Port Tunnel Project

Project components

Work on connecting the Port of Miami with a tunnel and widening the MacArthur continues on schedule. Set to cost $607 million to build, and the first tunnel of its kind in Miami-Dade, it will essentially provide direct access to those needing to enter the Port without having to clog up traffic on Biscayne Blvd.

For more information, read this.

The mechanism created specifically to build the tunnel.

Once completed, the tunnel entrance is expected to look like this:

When I wrote about this in 2007, the Palm, Star, and Hibiscus Island Homeowners Association posted my article on their home page–probably due to the potential impact on their island communities. Back then, as now, they are, with discerning eyes, keen to watch closely.

Think there’s room in the budget to make the MacArthur Cause look more interesting in the day? Probably not.
