Miami may get its new “signature” I-395 bridge sooner than expected now that bid protests tied to the multimillion-dollar contract have been dropped.

A group that includes Munilla Construction Management and Figg Bridge Group, the builder and engineer of the Florida International University bridge that collapsed in March and killed six people, withdrew its lawsuit after a judge confirmed awarding the $800 million contract to a competing bidder, Archer Western and The de Moya Group, according to the Miami Herald.

Former city of Miami commissioner Marc Sarnoff also withdrew a separate suit challenging the same award.

The Florida Department of Transportation project calls for parks and open space underneath and would reconnect streets that are blocked by the current expressway, which had a detrimental impact on Overtown when it divided the neighborhood in the 1960s.

Construction will begin once FDOT and Archer Western sign a contract, according to the Herald. [Miami Herald] – Katherine Kallergis
