Contractors are making progress on building a double deck highway as part of the Signature Bridge project, according to a monthly progress report.
The foundation of the double deck highway has now passed the halfway point. A total of 257 out of 507 auger cast piles have now been installed, the report said.
Contractors have begun casting the first of 140 bridge caps needed for the double deck highway. A total of 13 have been cast so far.
For the Signature Bridge itself through downtown Miami itself, foundation work is nearly halfway complete. Contractors have already installed 260 highway segments.
Contractors will cast a total of 1,949 segments for the project.
Work also continues to add a second lane from eastbound 836 to northbound I-95, which has been a bottleneck for decades.
