After nearly 5 years in the making, the Governor will dedicate the new Port of Miami tunnel today.


Port Access Tunnel Vice-President, Chris Hodgkins says today is largely symbolic, with the invariable last minute punch list still to be checked out, but overall the project is on time and on budget.


The nearly one-mile long underwater tunnel will link the MacArthur Causeway and PortMiami's cruise and freight berth's without a single stop sign or traffic light eliminating huge traffic tie-ups on the causeway.
