CEMEX supplies concrete, cement, and services for US$1 billion Port of Miami Project in Florida

Date published: October 24, 2011

CEMEX in the USA will provide approximately 250,000 cubic yards of ready-mix concrete for the more than US$1 billion Port of Miami project in south Florida. The new Port of Miami Tunnel will provide a direct connection from the Port of Miami through Watson Island to Dodge Island. The tunnel will maintain the competitive position of the Port of Miami, the county’s second largest economic generator, and reduce traffic congestion, making downtown streets safer.

CEMEX will supply approximately 250,000 cubic yards of concrete for the entire project, of that, 90,000 cubic yards of concrete will be used for the 12,000 segments of tunnel lining. CEMEX will also provide concrete for the underwater floor inside the shaft for the four-story-high tunnel-boring machine. This concrete must be poured underwater so the machine can be assembled in place and dig the tunnel, while the segments that will make up the tunnel are installed. This process will take place at both the entrance and exit of the tunnel.

As a global leader in the building materials industry, CEMEX provides high-quality products and reliable service to customers worldwide. To this end, the company tailors its products and services to solve its clients’ building challenges.
