Port Tampa Bay gets $19.8 million grant to expand container terminals


Port Tampa Bay received a $19.8 million grant from the US Department of Transportation to complete the Berth 214 project.

The port will use the grant to expand its container complex and meet existing market demand by expediting construction of a new, 1,300-foot-long berth and a 30-acre container yard.

The $50-million project will expand container capacity by 60%, increase the number of deep draft container vessels the port can receive, improve efficiency with a truck gate, and improve rail access.

Construction will begin within 18 months and take 30 to 36 months to complete.
