FDOT Setting Aside $86M over next 5 Year for Harbor Deepening Project

The FDOT is tentatively agreeing to begin to set aside money for the controversial harbor deepening project, which will be needed in order to attract larger shipping vessels, referred to as “Post Panamax” cargo ships. The funding will still need to be approved by state legislature, however this is a good sign of progress. The money that is being allocated is as follows:

  • 2016-2017: $10,000,000
  • 2017-2018: $15,552,000
  • 2018-2019: $19,944,000
  • 2019-2020: $15,944,000
  • 2020-2021: $24,944,000
