Facelift for Port Canaveral

Port Canaveral has renovated its North Cargo Piers 1 and 2 as part of an infrastructure improvement plan to maximise the usability of existing space at the port.


The eight-month modernisation project included replacing approximately 13,520 sq ft (1,256 sq m) of concrete pier deck, as well as the installation of marine fenders, bollards and concrete curbs. 

The project was completed by GLF Construction Corporation from Miami ahead of schedule.

Port operations were able to continue during construction with two adjoining piers remaining fully functional.

Captain John Murray, port ceo, 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.”

The port was awarded a Florida Seaport Transportation Economic Development (FSTED) grant to match 50 percent of the project’s cost, which totalled over USD4 million.
