The Port of Everett celebrates the completion and official grand opening of the modernized South Terminal – a $57 million maritime infrastructure project designed to support the next generation of larger vessels and heavier cargoes now calling Everett.
Port of Everett Commission President Glen Bachman said, “Completion of this project directly benefits our local, regional and national economies, enhances our national transportation network in support of the movement of commerce, and maintains and grows the 40,000+ family-wage jobs supported by Port operations.”
The Port broke ground on the South Terminal wharf strengthening (phase 2) project in 2018. The project completed strengthening of the 700-foot South Terminal wharf, acquired and relocated two Post-Panamax container cranes from the Port of LA to the dock, and upgraded dock electrical to support future shore power to allow ships to plug in and reduce emissions. Earlier work included on-dock rail upgrades, totaling $8 million to support the modernized facility.
