This $9.3 million design-build project consists of the construction of a 320-long pre-cast concrete pedestrian bridge, sidewalks and plazas that will connect the City of Sweetwater with FIU’s Modesto A. Maidique Campus (MMC) over 8th street. The proposed MCM-FIGG bridge design includes a central support tower rising 108 feet above the road that will make the structure a landmark and a gateway for western Miami-Dade County. The bridge will feature:

  • A lighting system designed by Randy Burkett that will illuminate the bridge at night.
  • A 30-foot wide concrete canopy
  • Enough width to allow for the comfortable passage of bikes and pedestrians as well as a space for special events and student seating.
