The project consists of the extension of the Southport Turning Notch to the west to create new cargo berthing area. The first portion of this project included creation of approximately 16 acres of new mangroves on undeveloped Port Everglades property that, after maturing, will be deeded to the State of Florida in exchange for an 8-acre portion of existing conservation easement needed for berth expansion. The second portion of the project includes the marine infrastructure associated with the extension of the Southport Turning Notch by approximately 1,420 feet to the west, with wharf construction, marine and utility infrastructure, and environmental mitigation.
