Yesterday, Brig. Gen. C. David Turner toured a dredge with other USACE representatives, including Col. Alan M. Dodd, Jacksonville District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers commander, while learning about the Miami Harbor expansion project.

Located in the heart of downtown Miami, PortMiami is the second largest revenue producing department in Miami-Dade County. It is expected that the project will create 33,000 new jobs, double cargo throughput, and increase PortMiami’s annual economic impact to more than $34 billion.

PortMiami’s the Deep Dredge project will deepen the Port’s existing channel from its current 42-foot depth to minus 50-52’ in preparation for the Panama Canal Expansion. The project is scheduled for completion in 2015.
