A concrete pour was scheduled last week for the pedestal of the first of six arches planned at downtown Miami’s Signature Bridge, according a presentation from FDOT.
Arch 2 will be the first arch to rise at the bridge, which has a design described as having an appearance like a fountain.
The center pedestal where all the arches will connect to is already rising vertically following multiple concrete pours, the presentation shows.
Work is also continuing on a double deck highway overpass near LoanDepot Park.
Construction crews are also now building a ramp to add an additional lane from eastbound SR 836 to northbound I-95.
