In anticipation of increased cargo loads following the completed expansion of the Panama Canal, PortMiami plans to demolish and remodel several of its warehouse.

“Nearly every warehouse is destined to be knocked down and relocated in the next five years,” said Kevin Lynskey, assistant port director. “There isn’t a priority list, but almost every one of them we’re going to let [go of] in the next few years.”

During a recent meeting of Miami-Dade County’s Economic Development and PortMiami committee, members approved a plan to tear down and relocate the marine spill facility at a cost of about $6.2 million, according to Miami Today. [Miami Today] Christopher Cameron
