Jacksonville Port Authority stands to receive $2.8 million in federal funds to spend on a long-planned dredging project in the St. Johns River.

Port Authority Director Rick Ferrin said the money will help pay for a $22 million project to deepen a 5.5-mile section of the river including Talleyrand and the Chaseville Turn. The navigable depth will go from 38 to 41 feet and the turn will be widened, he said.
