Third Thursday Lecture Series: Dredges, Dynamite, & Determination – the Building of the Tamiami Trail
April 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
This presentation explores the rare combination of technology and tenacity that ultimately yielded the miracle of modern engineering known as the Tamiami Trail. An analysis of the machinery and materials employed as well as rarely-seen photos and firsthand accounts of the work will leave no doubt as to why the massive project was—at the time—compared to the building of the Panama Canal.
