Our reputation is built on providing quality service and client satisfaction. Tamiami Canal Historic Swing Bridge PD&E
Florida Department of Transportation
Improvements to the historic swing bridge, which was structurally deficient and functionally obsolete, required extensive coordination with the State
Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), the United States Coast Guard and the FHWA. EAC’s Project Development and Environment Study considered
numerous alternatives with a focus on preserving the bridge’s historic significance and designation while also providing an improved transportation facility.
EAC’s robust public involvement program facilitated a well-received Locally Preferred Alternative, a new single-leaf bascule bridge with a four-lane,
undivided roadway alignment that satisfied the needs of the project. The existing bridge was relocated to a tributary of the Miami River where it will
connect two parks on either side of the river. The relocation was done in a manner that allowed the bridge to retain its historic designation.

replacement of the existing bridge with appropriate measures to minimize harm to the
affected historic resources.
