VIDEO: Charleston Harbor Post 45 Deepening
The official USACE YouTube channel, Corps Connection, has just released a very interesting video named ‘Charleston District – Channel Deepening and Peninsula Study Overview’.
In the video, Lt. Gen. Scott Spellmon, USACE Commanding General and 55th Chief of Engineers, talks with John Tecklenburg, mayor of City of Charleston, SC, and Lt. Col. Andrew Johannes, commander of Charleston District about the status of the Charleston Harbor Post 45 Deepening Project and the Charleston Peninsula Study.
The Charleston Harbor Post 45 Deepening Project looks to address transportation inefficiencies by deepening and widening Charleston Harbor to allow for growth in the shipping industry with the influx of Post-Panamax ships calling on port in the Lowcountry.
According to USACE, the project will provide over $169 M in average annual benefits.
