southport crane infrastructure improvements

The project consists of the landside infrastructure improvements to support the acquisition of up to five additional super post panama gantry cranes in Southport along Berths 31 and 32 as well as Berth 30.   Additionally, the project will include extending the existing 100' gauge crane rails along Berth 30, westward to the limits of the new Southport Turning Notch Extension.

To support the new crane rails, the project also will provide for a new two-story switchgear and office building to be located just west of the current facility. The design for the new facilities was completed summer 2016 while the procurement of the construction manager is currently underway.
