On Thursday, October 20, Secretary Salazar toured the Tamiami Trail Bridge Project site in Miami-Dade County, Florida where he received updates from the National Park Service and the Army Corps of Engineers on work to complete the one-mile bridge by 2013. Part of the largest construction project in the history of the National Park System, the bridge will help restore historic water flows to the Everglades. The increased water volumes and improved flow will re-establish seasonal water depths and flooding durations that are critical to the survival of many fish and wildlife species.
