Video Update on Mile Point

Governor Rick Scott yesterday officially kicked-off JAXPORT’s Mile Point harbor improvement project which will remove existing navigational restrictions on the St. Johns River at Mile Point.

This project will ensure larger ships can travel the channel more efficiently, saving shippers and businesses time and money in loading and unloading cargo. The state invested $43.5 million for the Mile Point harbor improvement project.

Currently, larger container ships can only travel the St. Johns River during two four-hour periods of the day due to the tidal effects at the Mile Point location.

The improvement will correct cross-currents that keep larger ships from using the channel.
