PortMiami Deep Dredge Project Near End

PortMiami is counting down to July for the completion of the Deep Dredge project that is deepening the Port’s main harbor channel from -42 feet to a depth of -50/52 feet. 

PortMiami will be the only major logistics hub south of Virginia capable of handling fully laden post-Panamax vessels.

More than $1 billion of capital infrastructure projects are transforming PortMiami. Already in place are new Super Post-Panamax gantry cranes that can service cargo vessels up to 22 containers wide with up to nine containers above deck and eleven containers below; new on-dock intermodal rail service linking PortMiami to 70% of the U.S. population in four days or less; as well as a new tunnel linking the Port directly to the United States Interstate Highway System.

In addition to the already completed infrastructure improvements, the newly deepened PortMiami will be a viable option for trade and commerce from the Southeastern United States to reach markets worldwide.

The United States Army Corps of Engineers is managing the project. Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company LLC, is the contractor that was selected for the deepening of PortMiami’s channel to -50/52 feet.

Dredging began in August 2013 with the competition set for July 2015, before the opening of the expanded Panama Canal.
