Port Miami Tunnel Opening Celebration!
Today was the historic PortMiami Tunnel Opening (where you can watch my video of the first 3 trucks that officially entered the port tunnel)! A better video can be found here, courtesy of Local 10.
As the Miami Herald reported today, four long years and $915 million dollars went into this tunnel that will now allow both cruise traffic and trucks to bypass downtown Miami and instead, head straight to the highway.
Much needed relief for residents. And… No Tolls!
Perhaps one of the more touching moments was when all of the 900+ workers were celebrated and extremely proud exiting the tunnel.
