Port Miami Tunnel Honored With NCPPP Infrastructure Project Award
Nossaman congratulates the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and the Port Miami Tunnel Project on receiving the "Infrastructure Project Award" at the 2015 National Public-Private Partnership Awards ceremony.
The Awards are overseen by the National Council for Public-Private Partnerships (NCPPP) and "recognize those organizations and individuals going above and beyond to advance the concept and implementation of public-private partnerships across the country." The $1 billion Port Miami Tunnel consists of twin tunnels under Biscayne Bay linking Port facilities on Dodge Island with a widened MacArthur Causeway and I-395. It is one the first public-private partnerships in the United States to use an availability payment contracting structure, and improves access for freight trucks and cruise passengers, reducing traffic congestion in downtown Miami and improving air quality.
