The second phase of the $1 billion PortMiami Tunnel project is set to begin next month, the Miami Herald reported. The tunnel will consist of two tubes under the bay that will allow for a two-lane highway between the port and MacArthur Causeway. The first eastbound tube leaving the MacArthur Causeway was finished at the end of July. The boring of the westbound tunnel will begin in October.

The tunnel consists of twin tubes that will carry a two-lane highway each way to convey vehicles between the port and the MacArthur Causeway. The eastbound tube from the MacArthur Causeway median at Watson Island to the port was completed July 31. Boring of the westbound tunnel is scheduled to begin Oct. 19.
“We are on time, we’re on schedule and we’re on budget”, Chris Hodgkins, vice president of Miami Access Tunnel, the tunnel’s developer, said. [Miami Herald] — Christopher Cameron
