Port Everglades Project Step Closer

Broward County’s Port Everglades is moving forward with a plan to widen and deepen its channels, but there are still several steps to go before construction begins, the Port’s Chief Executive Steven Cernak said last week.

Cernak also said that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has committed $1.2 million for the immediate next step, which is the pre-construction engineering and design phase, estimated to cost a total of $5.6 million.

Our Congressional Delegation has taken our message to Capitol Hill with determination and perseverance, so that we can begin the design phase this fall and be ready for construction before receiving Congressional authorization,” Cernak said. “It has been a long and winding road. But we are much closer to the finish line.

Cernak and members of the local Congressional Delegation addressed the need for continued bipartisan support to receive Congressional authorization and funding to move the project forward.
