South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) said in their latest announcement that Jim Newsome, SCPA president and CEO, R.D. James, Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Army for Civil Works, and other officials will gather on Friday, March 2, to celebrate the beginning of construction on the Charleston Harbor Deepening Project.

Charleston Harbor Deepening to 52 feet will make Charleston the deepest harbor on the U.S. Coast, an advantage integral to the port’s ability to handle bigger container ships without tidal limitations and support growth and economic development of the entire state, said SCPA.

Approximately eight years after efforts to deepen the Charleston Harbor began, this event will officially mark the beginning of construction on the project.

According to the official statement, SC Governor Henry McMaster, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham and LTG Todd T. Semonite, Chief of Engineers and Commanding General of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will also attend the ceremony.
