Port Everglades Wetlands Restoration

Client:  Broward County
Location: Broward County, Florida
Project Type: Environmental
Procurement Type: Contract – $17.5 Million

As part of the Port Everglades Turning Notch Extension, this project will lengthen the existing deepwater turn-around area for cargo ships from 900 feet to 2,400 feet, which will allow for up to five new cargo berths at Port Everglades. Bergeron Land Development will be responsible for replacing almost nine acres of an existing mangrove conservation easement with almost 17 acres of invasive trees and miscellaneous materials into a thriving mangrove wetlands area with approximately 70,000 red and black mangroves and some buffer species trees to complete the area. The project will also include a deep channel to allow for manatee access.
