The US Army Corps of Engineers has encouraged the public to provide input as part of an updated analysis under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for the Port Everglades navigation improvement project.  

An open comment period started in late September and will end March 24, 2017.

The Corps’ Jacksonville District and Port Everglades will host two scoping meetings February 22 at the Broward County Convention Center, 1950 Eisenhower Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. 33316.  Sign-in and poster sessions start at 2 and 6pm, with presentations at 2.30 and 6.30pm respectively, followed by a question and comment period.  The Corps will share new information and address all submitted written comments in a draft supplemental NEPA document.
