The project consisted on the replacement of the 54-Inch force main from Miami Beach to Virginia Key and replacement of a 20-Inch water main between Port Island and Fisher Island. This project was required not only to replace a deteriorated 54-Inch force main, but also to lower the pipeline before the U.S Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) commenced the dredging of Government Cut Canal to a depth of 50 feet. 


The tunnel crossing of Government Cut option encompasses a replacement of a 54-Inch force main placed inside of 72-Inch Steel casing. This FM was reconnected to an existing 54-Inch force main under the estate-owned waters south of Miami Beach and on the north end of Fisher Island.  Services provided by 300 staff during the design-build criteria package preparation included, but were not limited to: project management, utility coordination, tunnel design, scheduling, cost estimating, stakeholder coordination, permitting, and public involvement.
