Port Everglades to expand, add berths

ADVERTISEMENT

The Florida Seaport Transportation and Economic Development (FSTED) Council approved $16.5 million for Port Everglades to lengthen a cruise berth and to extend the port’s Southport turning notch to allow for more cargo berths.



The projects come before the Florida Legislature for approval this spring.



FSTED allocated $1.85 million to lengthen Slip 2, which includes Berth 4 and is used for cruise ships, by 250 feet westward. Once completed in September 2016, Slip 2 will be 1,150 feet long and 42 feet deep.



The corresponding Cruise Terminal 4 is being updated as part of an estimated $13.4 million renovation project. Groundbreaking is slated for May, with completion expected before the fall.



About $14.7 million will be used to lengthen the Southport turning notch for cargo ships from 900 to 2,400 feet, which will allow for up to five new cargo berths.
