PortMiami Tunnel To Remain Closed For Another Month

Inside the PortMiami Tunnel

A month since the ceremonial dedication, the $1 billion PortMiami Tunnel will not be open for traffic for at least another four to six weeks due to a leaky pipe system and two fans that stopped working, which control the tunnel's ventilation according to the Miami Herald. 

The French contractor Bouygues is being fined $115,000 every day that the tunnel is closed and has already climbed to $3 million. If the tunnel does not open until the end of July that total will jump to $8 million.
