The South Carolina Ports Authority has just released this brief video message from SCPorts President and CEO, Jim Newsome, about 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.
Mr Newsome, together with R.D. James, Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Army for Civil Works, 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 and other officials will gather on Friday, March 2, to celebrate the beginning of construction on the Charleston Harbor Deepening Project.
