Port Fact

Nearly $100 million committed
Delaware River Channel
Deepening Project

The Delaware River Deepening Project will receive a record $97.5 million
in federal funding this year and
in 2016 to continue deepening
the channel to 45 feet.
The project is moving forward rapidly, with full support of the Obama Administration in Washington and the Wolf Administration in Harrisburg.

The channel deepening not only
allows the Port of Philadelphia to maintain its competitiveness for
global maritime commerce, it opens doors for new opportunities and the cargoes and jobs that go with them.
