View all projects

Project

Starting in September 2019, the $65.2 million Everport Container Terminal Improvement Project involves the deepening of its berths and terminal facility improvements, which will allow the terminal operator to accommodate the larger next generation vessels. The project will increase berth depth from -45 to -53 feet at Berths 226-229, and increase berth depth to -47 feet at Berths 230-232. The project also involves the construction of an additional 1.5 acres of backland and electrical improvements for five new Alternative Maritime Power (AMP®) connections, as well as electrical infrastructure for three additional container cranes. Total project cost is $65.2 million, though $5.4 million is expected to be reimbursed from a Proposition 1B Trade Corridors Improvement Fund (TCIF) grant. Estimated construction completion is in late 2021.
