Port expansion to be discussed

ADVERTISEMENT

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is hosting two public meetings in late July to discuss a plan to deepen Port Everglades’ channel from 42 feet to 48 feet, and widen the entrance channel. The objectives of the project are to decrease costs associated with vessel delays from congestion and increase channel safety and maneuverability.


The meetings will be Tuesday, July 23rd at the Broward County/Fort Lauderdale Convention Center, Palm Room A, 1950 Eisenhower Blvd., Ft. Lauderalde, Fla., to discuss the release of the draft tentatively selected plan for Port Everglades Harbor. Meetings will be held from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., will feature a brief presentation and opportunity for questions and comments from the public.  

 

Read the feasibility study and report through Broward County’s library or online at www.saj.usace.army.mil/About/DivisionsOffices/Planning/EnvironmentalBranch/EnvironmentalDocuments.aspx#PE.


Comments on the plan will be accepted through Aug. 13 to Ms. Terri Jordan-Sellers at +1 904-232-1817 or by e-mail at Terri.Jordan-Sellers@usace.army.mil.
