Nov 18, 2014 by Guest Writer

Port Everglades has released its 20-year master plan, which details more than $1.6 billion in improvements, including five new berths for ships and a wider, deeper channel.

Construction is under way for a $14.9 million improvement to the port and convention center’s security checkpoint on Eisenhower Boulevard and a $42.5 million overpass for Eller Drive to carry traffic over neighboring rail tracks to expedite cargo to the port, according to a story in the South Florida Business Journal.

Deepening and widening the navigation channels to the port by 50 feet is expected to be completed in 2022 at a cost of $368.7 million.
