Miami International Airport is about to begin $1.45 billion worth of short term improvements over the next three years.
Some of the improvements will include a post-security connector between Concourse E and F, new hardstands and apron areas, cargo facilities, and other projects designed to improve efficiency.
Containerized cargo traffic at PortMiami increased 18.5 percent in August from the previous year as cargo totaled 99,546 twenty-foot equivalent units.
The Port said the growth in cargo is due to the $1.3 billion of infrastructure investments made in the port’s facilities. These investments included dredging the shipping channel and adding four super post-Panamax cranes, allowing the port to service larger cargo ships.
