ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Port Everglades is one of the busiest ports in the world and among the most active containerized cargo and cruise ship ports in the United States. In April 2013, GLDD completed maintenance harbor dredging at Port Everglades, removing 408,000 cubic yards of sediment in total. Approximately 95,000 cubic yards of material removed from the port’s entrance channel were added onto a 2,800-foot-long stretch of John U. Lloyd State Park for beach renourishment, beneficially reusing dredged material.
