Trucks gone from Broward Shipyard

ADVERTISEMENT

Large tractor-trailer trucks that used to cross through Broward Shipyard on the Dania Cut-off Canal in South Florida have been rerouted to a lane behind the building and along the north side of the yard.

The trucks with Seacor Shipping used an easement through the yard, raising dust and rocks and inconveniencing shipyard customers, said Pete Snyder, the yard’s general manager.

Broward Shipyard is the first yard on the Dania Cut-off Canal just outside Port Everglades.

Executives with Broward Shipyard went through “extensive negotiations” that took months but resulted in an agreement to have the trucks take the alternate route, effective mid-May.

Broward Shipyard is the first yard on the canal, about 1.5 miles from Port Everglades.
