A repeatedly delayed project to double-deck part of the Dolphin Expressway and erect a “signature bridge” flourish over Interstate 395 in Miami has hit even more setbacks.
The project, originally expected to end this year when shovels hit dirt in 2019, is now expected to reach completion in late 2027 and cost $38 million more than first estimated.
A spokesperson for the Florida Department of Transportation blamed “supply chain issues, among other factors, including weather and holidays.”
Most funding for the now $840 million undertaking comes from the state coffers. Miami-Dade County’s piece is $244 million in local toll revenues.
