The Post 45 Goes to Congress

Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works), Jo-Ellen Darcy, yesterday visited the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District, to tour projects affecting the Lowcountry.

Darcy toured the Charleston Harbor where she announced the completion of her review this week of the Chief’s Report for the Charleston Harbor Post 45 Deepening Project and that it has been passed on to the Office of Management and Budget as part of the Administration’s review.

From there, it goes to Congress to be considered for authorization and appropriation.

Darcy became the ASA (CW) in August of 2009 and this is her second visit to Charleston since that time.

The Charleston Harbor deepening project, better known as Post 45, began in 2011 and has moved expeditiously through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ accelerated planning process. It is the first project in the Corps to go through the USACE’s new Civil Works Planning Process from start to finish.

Upon completion of the 52 foot deepening, Charleston will offer the deepest harbor on the East Coast with unrestricted capability to handle post-Panamax vessel calls.
