Charleston to be deepest East Coast harbor

ADVERTISEMENT

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has given its final substantive approval for the deepening of South Carolina’s Charleston harbor to accommodate post-Panamax container ships.

The harbor channel is to be deepened to 52 feet and the entrance channel to 54 feet, a move that would make the harbor the U.S. east coast’s deepest. Additionally, the port’s turning basins will be enlarged.

The plans for the deepening will go to Congress with authorization expected early next year.
