Dredging Now

Ports being dredged now


Galloway 7/19Political Insider for the Atlanta Journal Constitution (Jim, 7/19/12, “White House commits to Port of Savannah dredging”, http://blogs.ajc.com/political-insider-jim-galloway/2012/07/19/white-house-commits-to-port-of-savannah-dredging/)

President Barack Obama today will announce that the dredging of the Port of Savannah is among seven nationally significant infrastructure projects that have been placed on a funding fast track, with all necessary federal reviews to be finished by November. The program, part of what Obama has dubbed his “We Can’t Wait” initiative, amounts to a federal commitment to the $650 million deepening. Political and business leaders throughout Georgia have called the deepening is the most important infrastructure project in the state. Other ports to receive improvements: Charleston, Jacksonville, Miami, and the Port of New York and New Jersey. The administration says dozens of additional projects to be expedited will be announced in the coming months. Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, who helped open doors for Georgia Republicans in Washington, this morning praised Obama for expediting the process. “This is critical for the entire state of Georgia, and is yet another example of the importance of working together across bipartisan and regional lines to keep us competitive and create jobs,” the Atlanta mayor said. U.S. Sens. Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson likewise applauded the decision. “I am glad to see that the administration recognizes the importance of the Port of Savannah,” said Chambliss. “This project has been in the works for more than a decade. It is time that the planning phase come to an end, and we move to construction.” “This is a positive step by the administration in recognizing the importance of the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project to our nation’s economy. We must be prepared for the larger vessels of the future, and I hope we can build on this momentum and begin the actual harbor deepening in Savannah as soon as possible,” Isakson said.

Status quo solves trade – east coast ports are key


Bauerlein 7/18 – staff writer for the Florida Times Union (Dave, 7/18/12, “Feds to fast-track study for deepening JaxPort”, http://jacksonville.com/news/metro/2012-07-18/story/feds-fast-track-study-deepening-jaxport)

The Obama administration will fast-track a study of deepening Jacksonville's ship channel so the report gets finished a year earlier, advancing the city's quest to be an international trade gateway. The administration will formally announce the accelerated schedule Thursday morning, before President Barack Obama's campaign rally at the Prime Osborn Convention Center in Jacksonville. The Army Corps of Engineers has previously said it expected to complete a feasibility study in 2014 for deepening the channel. The administration will move up that date to April 2013, according to the administration. The sooner the feasibility study is completed, the quicker the Jacksonville Port Authority can seek funding to start designing the project and ultimately do the dredging, which will likely cost several hundred million dollars. U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said Wednesday ports like Jacksonville have a chance to grow substantially because expansion of the Panama Canal will send bigger cargo ships to the East Coast. "For cities like Jacksonville, this kind of opportunity comes around once in a lifetime, and you have to be ready, willing and able to take advantage of the opportunity," LaHood said. "Certainly, I think Jacksonville will be." The president's proposed 2013 budget contains $1.4 million for the study.

AT: Too Slow


They will be done in time

AP 7/19 – Associated Press (7/19/12, “Obama Administration Fast Tracks PortMiami Dredge Project”, http://miami.cbslocal.com/2012/07/19/obama-administration-fast-tracks-portmiami-dredge-project/)

As part of the Obama administration’s efforts to speed up public works projects across the country during a weak economy, they’ve announced they’ve accelerated their work on port projects in Miami, Jacksonville and three cities. On Thursday the administration announced that they were expediting federal permits for deepening PortMiami and a feasibility study for dredging Jacksonville’s port. “This is wonderful news for the entire state of Florida,” said U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. “These projects have been in the works for years, and I’m glad we have a President who understands the value of them becoming a reality. President Obama is right – we can’t wait on these important initiatives that will boost our economy now. The Army Corps is working with PortMiami to deepen the channel at the port from its current depth of 42 feet to a depth of 50 feet. Once completed, the port will be able to accommodate larger cargo vessels and other ships. The deepening project of the navigation channel is expected to be complete by the end of the year. The dredging is expected to be complete by spring of 2015, just in time to be the first port along the eastern seaboard to receive the larger cargo ships that will begin shipping goods through an expanded Panama Canal. Miami-Dade County has been ahead of the curve in making major infrastructure improvements to its seaport, most notably the deepening of PortMiami’s channel to -50 feet, which will allow for the largest cargo ships in the world to dock at our port,” said Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez. “PortMiami will be the only U.S. East Coast Port, south of Norfolk, Va., to be at minus-50 feet when the expanded Panama Canal opens in early 2015.” In Jacksonville, the Army Corps of Engineers has previously said it expected to complete a feasibility study in 2014 for deepening the channel. The administration announced today that it will fast-track the study so that it is completed by April 2013. Other ports to receive improvements are: Charleston, Savannah, and the Port of New York and New Jersey.
