Jacksonville, Fla. --
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District staff will host a public teleconference April 26 from 11 a.m. to noon to provide an update on the ongoing Miami Harbor Navigation Improvement Study and to provide information on the study progress and upcoming milestones.
The navigation improvement study began in September of 2018 to evaluate existing navigation restrictions that contribute to delays and transportation cost inefficiencies, the restrictions that current channel depths and widths pose to ships that transit the harbor, and how the harbor contributes to the national economic development.
The April 26 update will review ongoing and future engineering, economic, and environmental tasks. Members of the public can join the call by dialing 1-877-336-1831 using access code 6046670 and security code 1234. Presentation materials are available at https://www.saj.usace.army.mil/MiamiHarborNavigationImprovementStudy/. Anyone interested in submitting comments or questions may do so by email at CESAJ-MiamiHarbor@usace.army.mil.
