Miami Harbor

Project Information
Sector: 
Ports and Waterways
Status: 
Complete
Description: 
The Army Corps is working with the Port of Miami to construct an authorized project that involves deepening the Federal navigation at the port from its current depth of 42 feet to a depth of 50 feet. The project would enable the port to accommodate larger cargo vessels and other ships, ultimately facilitating a more efficient movement of goods. Through a progressive partnership with the State of Florida, which has provided all of the funds needed to construct this project, the time frame for its construction has been advanced by years. Related infrastructure improvements include landside investments funded in part by the Department of Transportation.
