Moss/Kiewit gets $471 million Everglades contract

The expansion project will lengthen the deepwater turnaround area by about 1,500 feet and allow for up to five new cargo berths.

 
The joint venture of Moss/Kiewit announced Friday it is under contract for $471 million for the expansion of Port Everglades’ Southport turning notch and crane rail.
    The upgrades are part of the Fort Lauderdale, Fla. port’s multiyear expansion project, which will lengthen the existing deepwater turnaround area for cargo ships from about 900 feet to 2,400 feet and allow for up to five new cargo berths, according to the press release.
    The project will extend the Southport Turning Notch by about 1,500 feet to the west, with 1.5 miles of seawall/wharf construction, maritime and utility infrastructure and 18 acres of upland improvements. The project, designed by DeRose Design Consultant Inc., also requires the excavation of 3 million cubic yards of material and environmental mitigation, which includes the creation of an artificial reef off the coast and the relocation of coral from the existing turning notch to the new reef.
    The crane rail improvement project will include the construction of an electrical switchgear building, 2.2 miles of electrical duct bank and 4,500 linear feet of a gantry crane foundation system. The crane rail project, designed by Liftech Consultants, Inc., will support three new gantry cranes once completed, according to the statement.
    The project is slated for completion in July 2023.

If the U.S. is going to plug and play and take on the [TPP] standards, I think that would be fairly easy.

U.S-flagged Great Lake freighters moved 3.1 million tons of cargo in January, a 110 percent year-over-year increase and 44 percent above the month’s five-year average.
