Canaveral Port Authority, USA, has broken ground on a USD48 million project to rebuild its North Cargo Berth 3 (NCB3).
Built in 1976, NCB3 has been out of service since 2014. Demolition of the existing pier began in December 2021; it will be replaced with an 880 ft (268.2 m) wharf.
“This groundbreaking is the start of a new chapter for Port Canaveral,” said Captain John Murray, port director and ceo. “This berth project is critical to expand our abilities to accommodate a growing and very diverse cargo business portfolio.”
