Port Fact

Nearly $100 million committed
Delaware River Channel
Deepening Project

The Delaware River Main Stem Channel 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, and has the full
support of the Obama Administration in Washington and the Wolf Administration in Harrisburg.

The deepening of the shipping channel 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.
