Downtown Miami’s $802 Million Signature Bridge Project Now Has An Estimated Completion Date Of Fall 2024, A Year Later Than Originally Planned

A website for the $802 million Signature Bridge project in downtown Miami appears to be showing a delay in completion.

Work got underway in fall 2018 on what is one of the biggest highway reconstruction projects in the history of the city, including rebuilding of the entire interchange of I-95, the 836 and I-395 to the MacArthur Causeway.

A spider-like structure rising hundreds of feet in the air and lit up at night is the centerpiece of the project.

Last year, a representative for FDOT said the clock for the design-build contract began on October 29, 2018. Contractors were given a four year contract time for completion (excluding holidays, weather, and special events), with completion due in fall of 2023.

Now, the project website has been updated to show an expected completion in the fall of 2024. The project cost is still showing as $802 million, as it was last year.

We’ve reached out to a representative for an explanation.
