Rick Scott to Make Announcement Regarding I-395 Signature Bridge

Gov. Rick Scott is scheduled to make an announcement on Tuesday in Miami regarding the I-395 signature bridge project.

Plans to upgrade the bridge have been in the works for over 20 years, but state transportation engineers have been working with downtown Miami residents and civic leaders to develop the signature bridge since 2009. 

The city of Miami sued the Florida Department of Transportation over the bridge earlier this year. The lawsuit alleged that the state secured federal funds to build a 600-foot signature bridge, but when funds were secured, FDOT suddenly announced it was considering a design for the bridge which was different than the one the city and neighborhood groups originally approved.
