The Port announced the allocation of $7.95M from the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 Work Plan. This appropriation advances a critical federal dredging project in 2019, supporting Port operations, ensuring continued ship access to the Port and furthering Port economic activity to the Silicon Valley region.
Dredging allows the Port to better support existing customers, grow operations serving larger cargo vessels in the future and move more cargo by ship, which takes trucks off the road, alleviating congestion and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
