Controversy Mars Selection of Contractor for Miami “Signature Bridge” Project, an $800 Million P3

Curbed Miami reports, “After years of chatter, the design for a state-funded ‘signature bridge’ at Miami’s core has been chosen,” however there is controversy surrounding the vendor selection process. According to Curbed, on May 12, FDOT selected a proposal submitted by a joint venture team led by Archer Western and The de Moya Group, which edged out its closest competitor by a mere half a point. The $800 million P3 project, an FDOT-MDX collaboration, involves the bridge construction and reconstruction of parts of I-395 and SR 836.
