Airport Link described as “Portal to the Future”

It has been years in the making, but the Airport Link will soon become a reality.  Unlike many major cities around the country and worldwide, public transportation access to Miami International Airport is limited.  The largest disconnect is between the airport and the metro-rail system.  By establishing the link, it ties the airport directly to Downtown Miami, which then leads visitors and residents alike to many other destinations within the city.  The two companies behind building the link are Odebrecht and OHL, two of the largest construction companies with offices around the world.  The video below describes the history of the project, as well as some construction details.  Toward the end of the video, former DawnTown juror, and international artist Michele Oka Doner is shown creating a new installation for the airport link.
