Description
Watson Island holds a dynamic and important position in Biscayne Bay off the coast of Miami. (SEE APPENDIX D for details) The island named for John W. Watson Sr., who was mayor of Miami from 1912-1915, and again in 1917-1919, was created by land reclamation in 1926 from dredging for the shipping channel providing access to the Port of Miami. Watson Island is close to downtown Miami and accessed only by the Macarthur Causeway and Bridge that help comprise highway 395, a major artery for Miami that services Miami Beach.
A new project that further anchors the importance of the island and its location is the Miami Port Tunnel project which broke ground on May 24th, 2010. The tunnel will connect Watson Island to Dodge Island, the home of one of the largest cruise ship and cargo ports in the world. The project is scheduled to be completed by May 2014 and will traverse under the shipping channel, helping alleviate the current traffic congestion in downtown.
