New viaduct provides truck access to MIA’s West Cargo area

New viaduct provides truck access to MIA’s West Cargo area

Trucks can now drive directly to and from Miami International Airport’s West Cargo area avoiding local congestion with the opening of the $63 million N.W. 25th Street Viaduct.

The viaduct allows the 5,000 trucks that travel to and from the West Cargo area a day to drive above street lights and avoid local traffic on N.W. 25th Street. Westbound traffic connects directly to Northbound State Road 826 and it connects with the previously constructed East viaduct, which goes over the 826 expressway, touching down East of N.W. 82nd Avenue.

Miami-Dade aviation director, Emilio Gonzalez says: “Modernising our cargo area is critical to maintaining our position as America’s busiest international freight airport and one of the busiest in the world.”

“N.W. 25th Street is the main artery for ground traffic between MIA’s cargo area, the busy warehouse district west of MIA, and Florida’s highway system, so the completion of the viaduct is a major milestone for our airport and ultimately, our local, state and national economy.”
