Construction begins Tuesday on the Miami Central Station, a major component of the Miami Intermodal Center, South Florida’s first ground transportation hub.

Covering 16.5 acres, the $147 million Miami Central Station is a terminal scheduled to open in 2013 with access to various transportation services, including Amtrak and Tri-Rail, according to the project website. Metrorail will also connect to the station via the 2.4-mile AirportLink extension that is to be complete in April 2012.

“The Miami Central Station is the crown jewel of the MIC Program,” Florida Department of Transportation Secretary Ananth Prasad said in a news release. “It will make a significant difference for residents and visitors by giving them transportation choices within this one location.” Continue Click here to download Adobe Reader

Miami International Airport: Gateway to the Americas  Click here to download Adobe Reader

Business Excellence - Miami International Airport: Gateway to the Americas

 

By the end of 2012, Miami International Airport (MIA) will have been transformed by completion of the North Terminal Development Program. MIA, which is operated by the Miami-Dade Aviation Department, is the largest US gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean and is one of the leading international passenger and freight airports in the world. 96 different carriers are involved in shifting over two billion tons of freight annually and ensuring the safe travel of almost forty million passengers.

MIA also has a reputation for aesthetics to live up to. Cited within the industry as one of the six most beautiful airports in America and among the top 15 in the world, it is imperative that any new development enhances the environment of calm and tranquility that its operators have sought to cultivate.

“This has been a huge redevelopment project which is costing in the region of $3 billion,” states Juan Carlos Arteaga, who has held overall responsibility for the program since March 2006. The most significant challenge of his career to date has involved expanding and renovating five distinct concourses which have been remodeled into a state-of-the-art, 1.3-mile-long linear terminal.  Continue Click here to download Adobe Reader

The Miami Herald -- Rail link from MIA to transit center inaugurated

José Abreu was 13 years old when he arrived in Miami in 1968 as a Cuban refugee, landing at Miami International Airport. Almost half a century later, on Thursday, Abreu was the center of attention, applause and recognition at the inauguration of the automatic train connecting the airport with the huge Miami Intermodal Center transportation facility east of MIA, one of the most expensive and complex projects in South Florida history.

North Terminal Projects Honored by Engineering News-Record 

 

Two new areas in MIA’s North Terminal have been named among 35 winners in Engineering News-Record Southeast’s 2011 Best Projects competition. North Terminal’s Concourse D skytrain and Regional Commuter Facility were joint Merit Award winners in the Transportation category. 

The Concourse D skytrain, which opened last September, connects passengers from one end of Concourse D to the other within a few minutes and has reduced the average walking time in North Terminal by 50 percent. The Regional Commuter Facility is a 50,000-square-foot extension of North Terminal that opened last August to serve American Eagle’s regional jet operations and includes two new concourse-level gates, a new passenger waiting area and outdoor walkways to 12 lower-level gates. 

Engineering News-Record, published by McGraw-Hill, is one of the leading publications in the construction industry. Continue Click here to download Adobe Reader

MIA’s New People Mover Gets Movin’ Friday  Click here to download Adobe Reader

CBS Miami  --MIA’s New People Mover Gets Movin’ Friday

 

Miami international Airport has made it easier for tourists to get from the airport to where they can rent a vehicle. “From now on people will be able to go directly to the rental car center in a much more efficient way,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez during the inauguration of the new MIA Mover, a new light rail people mover which operates between the airport and the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC), which is about a mile and quarter away. “From plane to train to car that’s basically it,” said airport spokesman Marc Henderson. With a top speed of 40 miles per hour, the MIA Mover can make the trip to the Rental Car Center at the MIC in about three minutes. “It’s a nice ride, it’s a great view of downtown Miami and you see how beautiful this place really is,” Gimenez said.

With a top speed of 40 miles per hour, the MIA Mover has the capacity to transport more than 3,000 passengers per hour free of charge directly between MIA and the Rental Car Center’s customer service lobby just east of Le Jeune Road.  MIA passengers simply exit their concourse and take elevators to MIA’s third level moving walkway, which quickly connects them to the MIA Mover.  It also completely replaces the Rental Car Center shuttle bus service previously in operation, eliminating approximately 1,400 shuttle bus trips per day and reducing carbon emissions from MIA’s roadways by 30 percent.  The system’s MIA Station is also the first mass transit project in Miami-Dade County to be Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold-certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.  Continue Click here to download Adobe Reader

The MIA Mover is up and running at the Miami International Airport. It's a 1.25-mile-long elevated people mover system that connects passengers from the airport to the rental car center. "It makes it so much easier for our passengers, train to plane to car. It's just that simple," said Marc Henderson, of Miami-Dade Aviation."It's a nice ride. You have a great view of downtown Miami," said Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez.

The electric-powered mover can transport 3,000 passengers per hour and is eco-friendly, reducing fuel emissions by 15 percent."Our visitors always look for easy. They want to be able to get in after a long flight, get their bags, get out and enjoy where they are going," said Henderson. The new system will also help with traffic around the airport as it replaces the shuttle bus service. "This way, passengers come directly to the rental car center. It will be much better for them, much better for us, and it's just another step in the transformation of this airport," Gimenez said. The MIA Mover can travel 40 mph and takes three minutes to get to the airport from the rental car center. It will be up and running Friday. Continue Click here to download Adobe Reader

Miami International Airport on Thursday unveiled its MIA Mover, an elevated people mover that will transport travelers from the airport terminal to the rental car center. The mover travels 1.25 miles from the third floor of the airport terminal, across LeJeune Road to the MIA Rental Car Center, which opened in July 2010 and houses operations for 16 rental car companies. It can transport up to 3,000 passengers an hour, features eight train cars and will help reduce airport fuel emissions by 15 percent. The project created 1,000 jobs and was completed on time and under budget by $5 million, which will be returned to Miami-Dade County, said Gilberto Neves, president and CEO of Odebrecht USA.

The MIA Mover, Miami Central Station, rental car center and several highway improvements comprise the Miami Intermodal Center project, Miami-Dade County's first transportation hub, which is being developed by the Florida Department of Transportation. FDOT began working on intermodal projects in 1989, before it was popular, said José Abreu, director of the Miami-Dade Aviation Department and a former FDOT employee.

POJV to Participate in MIA Mover Inaugural Celebration

 

he Parsons–Odebrecht Joint Venture (POJV), in conjunction with the Miami–Dade Aviation Department, is pleased to announce the opening of the MIA Mover, the new 1.25-mile Automated People Mover (APM) at Miami International Airport (MIA). The inaugural celebration will take place on Thursday, September 8, 2011, at 10:30 a.m. Invited guests include state and county officials, as well as community and business leaders.

Under a design-build contract, POJV constructed the MIA Mover guideway and stations and, through a subcontract with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, installed the full turnkey operating system, including eight state-of-the-art Crystal Mover APM vehicles. The MIA Mover system links the airport with its nearby multimodal rail transportation center and consolidated rental car facility, known as the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC)—Miami–Dade County’s own “grand central station.” The MIC is the southern terminus for multicounty Tri-Rail rail-car service.

“This is yet another successful milestone for Miami–Dade County, MIA, POJV, and its partners,” said José Abreu, Director of Miami–Dade County’s Aviation Department, which operates MIA. “Moving people is what we are all about, and today we are even closer to the day when the traveling public can move seamlessly among all forms of ground transportation, mass transit, and air travel.” Continue Click here to download Adobe Reader

The MIA Mover, an elevated train opening Sept. 9 at Miami Airport, will transport passengers between the airport and the rental-car center. The four-level rental-car facility opened in July 2010 as the first phase of the Miami Intermodal Center.

The MIA Mover, which can carry 3,000 passengers per hour, will replace shuttle-bus service between the airport and the rental-car center. Travelers renting a car will take moving walkways on the terminal’s third level to the MIA Mover’s airport station and board one of eight train cars to the rental car facility. The people mover also will connect travelers to Miami-Dade County’s Metrorail system when the airport link is completed next April.  Continue Click here to download Adobe Reader

Art at Miami International Airport Adds a Cultural Dimension to Travel Click here to download Adobe Reader

The little girl looks to be about 6 years old. She is hopping on one foot, landing first on a piece of coral, then on a sea anemone, then a starfish, and so on, all outlined in bronze and embedded in the floor of Terminal D at Miami International Airport. She could hop across this black terrazzo sea flecked with bits of mother-of-pearl for half a mile, if only her mother would let her. “I wish I had a camera,” exclaims Yolanda Sanchez. She is leading a writer on a tour of MIA’s art exhibits and public artworks.

Sanchez has been the director of fine art and cultural affairs at the airport since 1995, the same year that installation began on Michele Oka Doner’s floor, A Walk on the Beach. “Michele would love this,” Sanchez smiles, watching the girl. Then she continues the tour, describing what A Walk on the Beach will look like after it is refurbished in the coming months.

Though the floor is only 15 years old, the 37 million people who trudge through the airport every year take a toll. The process will be slow — it’s not scheduled for completion until January — because the epoxy terrazzo must be hand-buffed by a team of three. And those three people will only be able to work three hours a night, the only time each day that Terminal D is closed to passengers. Continue Click here to download Adobe Reader

MIA's New Airport Essentials Shop Has Everything You Need to Fly (Plus Crocs) 

Miami International Airport--particularly the D Terminal--continues to spruce itself up, first with respectable places to eat and drink, and now with a brand new sundries shop. OK, so it's not exactly haute couture, but if you want labels, MIA has those too: there's a Coach, Thomas Pink and even an Emporio Armani also right there in AA's D gates area.

Fashion cred aside, we were stoked to welcome Air Essentials to MIA. We're used to seeing shops like this--a pharmacy without the Rx drugs, basically--in European and Australian airports, and wish more U.S. cities would follow suit and get themselves one, too. If not Air Essentials, even a good ol' CVS or Walgreens would do. Continue Click here to download Adobe Reader

New hi-tech security scanners have been installed in airports across South Florida. An anonymous figure now reveals where on someone's body a security agent should search. Airport security at Miami International Airport has become a little less personal without compromising safety. The new scanning machine scans the body from head to toe and still keeps a person's identity confidential.

Duty Free Americas has opened four new luxury boutiques at Miami International Airport, writes Lois Pasternak. The stores, from leading brand names Coach, Emporio Armani, Montblanc and Thomas Pink, are helping to transform the shopping experience at Miami Airport.

With the airport’s US$2.94 billion North Terminal operational and nearly completed, passengers near Gates 9 and 10 had an unexpected surprise last Monday morning, with entertainment provided by a classic pianist performing on a grand piano, a pulsating, fashion show featuring the latest ranges from Emporio Armani, and two British ‘royal guards’ who posed for photos with passers-by.

The occasion was the official grand opening of the four luxury boutiques by Duty Free Americas. Each of the four ribbon-cutting ceremonies was witnessed by passengers, airport staff and officials, which included Miami Dade Aviation Director José Abreau, Deputy Directors Miguel Southwell and Ken Pyatt, Assistant Aviation Director Lauren Stover and Chief of Airport Concession Business Development Adrian Songer and his staff, among others.

Security Wait Times for All Major U.S. Airports  Click here to download Adobe Reader

Farecompare - Security Wait Times for All Major U.S. Airports 

 

Finding out the average airport security wait time is not as easy as it appears. The Transportation Security Agency used to have this information on its website, but they took it down in 2009. Now they have an app you can use, either on your computer or mobile device, to find out current airport security wait times. The Customs and Border Protection Agency also has a web page that can fetch average security wait times for an airport for a given time period, but the data is incomplete.

Sometimes this information is listed on an airport’s website, and some airport security information is available from news stories on the web. But there is no definitive, one-stop site to navigate in order to find out once and for all what the average security wait time is for any airport. With that in mind, we have compiled the following table of the 25 busiest U.S. airports along with average TSA security wait times. The information was gleaned from a variety of sources.

Average Wait Time for Miami International Airport: 7 minutes
