Gov. Rick Scott broke ground Thursday on the new Intermodal Container Transfer Facility at Port Everglades. The project is the nation’s only combined on-port international and domestic cargo rail facility. Scott also announced the commitment of $13 million to begin work on the port’s Southpost Turning Notch Extension project, which will increase dock space at Port Everglades. “Today’s announcement is another example of Florida’s commitment to our world class port system being a driver of our economy,” he said. “This $13 million investment in our port system is one of the reasons why Florida’s economy continues to move in the right direction and creates more jobs and opportunities for Florida families.” —Alexander Britell
