harriet-tunnel"Harriet" is the name given by The Miami-Dade Girl Scouts to the tunnel boring machine which is connecting Watson Island to Dodge Island.  This massive project will take cargo trucks which service the Port of Miami off of downtown streets.  Trucks will be able to access the port off I 95 to I 395 and go through the tunnel under the waterway.  This will speed delivery of food and other products to the millions of passengers who set sail for a cruise out of the Port of Miami.  This will help the many new residents of the downtown Biscayne Blvd who currently compete with the service trucks on the streets of downtown Miami.
