The Florida Department of Transportation is about to spend a billion dollars improving the I-395 corridor from I-95 to the foot of MacArthur Causeway. This plan features a “Signature Bridge” to be constructed near Biscayne Boulevard and the interstate.
I can think of no more fitting or lasting tribute to José Fernandez than to have this bridge bear his name. It will stand in the heart of Miami, only a long toss away from Freedom Tower. Fernandez embodied the soul and spirit of Miami with an energy and smile that will never leave us.
