Port Canaveral on Tuesday announced completion of its renovation of two North Cargo piers.
The project was valued at $4 million.
The eight-month modernization project is part of an infrastructure improvement plan that makes the most use of bulkhead space at the port while also allowing officials leeway for future cargo operation expansions.
Construction included new concrete decking, marine fenders, bollards and concrete curbs. GLF Construction Corp. from Miami performed the work, which began in October 2017. The work was finished a few days earlier than expected.
“Port Canaveral is a strategic asset for Central Florida,” John Murray, chief executive officer of Port Canaveral, said in a statement.
“It’s vitally important that our capabilities keep pace with the economic growth of our region,” he said. “The restoration of North Cargo Piers 1 and 2 ensure we have the ability to meet our current cargo projections while keeping us well positioned for the future.”
A Florida Seaport Transportation Economic Development grant matched half of the project’s cost.
