Tamiami Trail Bridge

Phase I of Tamiami Trail Bridging Completed

The Corps completes a one-mile long bridge on Tamiami Trail. When completed, the 6.5 miles of bridging will allow water to flow under Tamiami Trail and into northeast Shark River Slough. The road, which was originally constructed to provide a faster route from Tampa to Miami, has long impeded the flow of water through Everglades National Park.
