MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LILLY + Associates International today announced the release of a new white paper, “PortMiami Tunnel: The New Standard in Transportation Infrastructure.” The study is the first of its kind to explore the rich history of the tunnel responsible for removing nearly 1.5 million trucks from the streets of downtown Miami and easing commerce to and from industrial areas to the Port.
LILLY + Associates International developed the white paper to showcase the impact smart investments in transportation infrastructure can have on both a community and broader international trade patterns.
“The completion of the Port of Miami Tunnel and deep dredging projects will propel Miami to the forefront of a Post-Panamax world,” said Nelson R. Cabrera, Director of Business Development at LILLY + Associates International.
The paper covers all aspects of the Miami tunnel, from planning and development, to preparations for business after the completion of the Panama Canal expansion.
Cabrera said, “It is fascinating to see the prioritization from local, state, and national policy makers and stakeholders on Miami’s infrastructure. That teamwork is allowing the cargo community to take full advantage of the global cargo shifts from U.S. West Coast to U.S. East Coast, making Miami an attractive national player for importers and exporters alike.”
