No. 6 - Port of Miami Tunnel Project

Dec. 5, 2014

Called a “pork barrel project” by President Ronald Reagan

back in the 1980s, the Port of Miami Tunnel Project

has proven to be more lean than fat. Originally thought

to cost over $3 billion, the price tag was reduced to $1

billion. The tunnel provides a direct connection from the

Port of Miami to highways via Watson Island to I-395.

The tunnel boring machine was 540 ft long and 40 ft in

diameter. Heavy trucks traveling to and from the port are

now allowed to bypass downtown Miami, and the project

was one of the first P3 ventures in the state.
