TBT (May 26, 2014) - In May 2014, the PortMiami Tunnel opened for business after costing $1 billion to complete. The tunnel was built from Watson Island to the Port of Miami to give trucks a direct access to the Port and not have to go through the streets of Downtown Miami.
Last week the PortMiami Tunnel had it's opening ceremony, which was dedicated by Gov. Rick Scott. (This can be read here)
Recently, the Arquitectonica designed portal entrance has been lit at night with vibrant red lightning on the front and side of the structure which there is no mistaking when driving over the MacArthur Causeway.
The $1 billion PortMiami Tunnel is expected to be open for trucks and traffic sometime this week. Every day that contractors are not finished by the completion date they will be fined $115,000.
*Update* The PortMiami Tunnel is experiencing delays and won't be open until Mid-June.
