Tubes or crates which comprise it are built in a dry dock and then moved by flotation to be sunk at the bottom of the channel of the Havana Bay, where there were previously excavated ditch where would be deposited. He managed to inaugurar him after three years of work, and the work was done reality yearning bind of a fast and comfortable way Havana with what is thought to be the eastern city and a string of beaches of enchantment with its White Sands and crystal clear waters. It was enough to traverse the habanera rada under the sea and that was done in a matter of seconds. The idea of shortening the journey time between the city and the beaches of the East, was certainly not new. For many years it could be reached only to them completely skirting the Bay and was forced the use of lousy roads that made travel extremely uncomfortable… Already in 1910-12, Dionisio Velazco, engineer and owner of large tracts of land in the East of Havana, designed a bridge that would run on the Bay between the Avenida del Puerto and the heights of la Cabana.

It was the solution that is appropriate for the time. But the project did not pass that because vetoed it the US Congress, which argued that in case of war the destruction of this road will cause the closure of a the strategic importance as the Havana port. The bridge was not built and the town continued its expansion towards the South and West, while the East was still constrinendo to its beaches that attracted more and more attention to vacationers and people willing to invest in them. Transfer to them remained a martyrdom until the Decade of the 40s of the last century when they built a modern road called Via white that it made possible the journey even to the city of Matanzas.
