Broward County’s Port Everglades has received a new report that clears the way for it to begin the next phase of deepening and widening its channels.
Federal health officials say about 200 people have come down with vomiting and diarrhea aboard two San Diego-bound cruise ships.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says a project to deepen two channels approaching the port is about 35 percent complete. Dredging is expected to finish in July 2015.
It’s been two months since the English soccer star hopped on a stage, his back to Miami’s sparkling Biscayne Bay, and announced plans to start a Major League Soccer franchise. The plan — and Beckham — have been almost universally accepted by every sector of the city.
Florida could be in a competition with Panama as the Central American nation invests more money into infrastructure, according to the state’s Agricultural Commissioner, Adam Putnam.
The dredge that will deepen Miami’s port, Governor Scott believes, will produce thousands of jobs statewide.
Gov. Rick Scott will be in South Florida Friday to get a better look at the dredging operation at PortMiami.
Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) will join Vice President Joe Biden in a visit to the Panama Canal next week.
There’s positive economic news for Port Everglades. The Port is expanding as part of a project to help ports around the country accommodate vessels after the Panama Canal is widened in 2015.
PortMiami is taking its container handling capabilities to new heights Monday with arrival of four new Super-Post Panamax cranes.
