State Road 887 - PortMiami Tunnel

Home » Guides » Florida » State Road 887 - PortMiami Tunnel

A 1.00 mile route, State Road 887 is the PortMiami Tunnel linking MacArthur Causeway (SR A1A) with Cruise Boulevard and Port Boulevard at the Port of Miami. Costing $668.5 million to build, the 4,200 foot long tunnel opened to traffic on August 3, 2014.1 The toll free crossing provides a high speed route from I-95, I-395 and SR 836 (Dolphin Expressway) onto Dodge Island. The tunnel allows trucks and other traffic to bypass the Port Boulevard (SR 886) bridge and connection from U.S. 1 (Biscayne Boulevard) at Downtown Miami.
