In the Beginning…

  • In the late 1980s

    • East-West Transportation Corridor expansion

    • Central facility to link all modes of ground transportation and decongest airport access roads


MIC History

  • Congress adopts Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) in 1991 laying groundwork for MIC’s creative financing

  • FDOT commissions Parsons Brinckerhoff to conduct East-West Corridor Study

    • FHWA grants FDOT a ROD in September 1998

    • FDOT turns project over to Miami-Dade Transit & Miami Dade Expressway Authority for implementation

  • FDOT commissions ICF Kaiser to conduct MIC Study

    • FHWA grants FDOT a ROD in May 1998
