VIDEO: MIAMI’s $802M SIGNATURE BRIDGE PROJECT + DOUBLE DECK 836 + 395 CAUSEWAYJune 19, 2019
If you don’t live in Miami, you may not be interested in this. However, if you visit Miami & The Beaches often, you’ll be amazed at how much Miami is investing in its Highways and Bridges. The FDOT released a new video detailing plans for the $802 million Signature Bridge project, where construction is now underway.
The design-build contractor has four years to complete the project from October 29, 2018. Holidays, weather, special events, and any unforeseen circumstances are excluded, so completion is actually scheduled for Fall, 2023.
As part of the project, a 55-acre public park underneath a newly elevated bridge will be created.
A double-deck highway is expected to relieve congestion on part of the 836 expressway, while the entire interchange will be untangled and rebuilt.
The Signature Bridge itself will become a Miami landmark for generations to come, FDOT says. At night, a lighting system will illuminate the spans.
If you frequently use the I-95, 395 Causeway to Miami Beach, or 836 Dolphin Expressway, you’ll want to know what’s in store for the next 4 years. You can watch the whole video below. If you frequently travel to/from Miami Beach to Downtown Miami (including Port Miami) and Brickell, you’ll be amazed what the future will bring to this new epicenter of Miami Florida (video below)
