Dredging project may hamper boat show access

The Miami Herald has reported that a sea grass mitigation plan related to the Port Miami expansion is creating a depth issue for yachts positioning into Miami Beach for the Yacht & Brokerage Show next month.


The area of concern is an east-west corridor just north of the Julia Tuttle Causeway/I-195 with deep water. A contractor for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has begun erecting pilings with silt curtains that narrow the unmarked but commonly used deep-water channel.


Miami activists are headed to a Miami Beach city commission meeting this morning to urge them to get involved to have the Army Corps remove the pilings.
