SR-90 Tamiami Trail Next Step

Condotte America as the prime contractor was responsible for the design and construction of the SR90 (Tamiami Trail) 2.6 mile bridging project that extends from East of Osceola Camp at milepost 14.038 to West of Airboat Association of Florida at milepost 17.230 in Miami-Dade County for a total distance of approximately 3.1 miles.

The primary objective of the project was to re-establish a hydraulic connection (north to south), thereby allowing increased water conveyance into Everglades National Park. Specifically, this project replaced the existing Tamiami Trail roadway bed with 2.3 miles of bridges that will allow for the future flow of water from the portion of the Everglades north of Tamiami Trail to the Shark River Slough to the south of the highway with the objective of restoring the historic hydrologic flow to the southern Everglades.  This environmentally sensitive project required coordination with the National Park Service, South Florida Water Management District and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
