The $14.8 million needed to complete the deepening of the St. Johns River to allow larger ships to call on the Port of Jacksonville is available through the federal stimulus package.

The Corps also received about $150,000 to study altering the water flow where the St. Johns River and Intracoastal Waterway meet. Ships are limited to crossing the waterway just twice a day because the tidal pull causes choppy waters. It will cost about $60 million to widen the Intracoastal’s inlet so that the force of the stream doesn’t disrupt ship routes. The Corps is also looking at the potential environmental impacts of the proposed project.
