Bidding process starts for new SPA terminal's first project

Canal ExpansionBY ALLYSON BIRD for The Post and Courier Moving ahead with its plan to built a new container terminal at the former Navy base in North Charleston, the State Ports Authority is seeking bids for the terminal's first major construction project. Fourteen companies have already expressed interest in constructing a 5,000-foot containment wall. The project, estimated at $60 million, will require dredging 880,000 cubic yards of material, installing pipe and sheet pile and constructing a rock berm. The containment wall will prepare the tideland area of the 280-acre terminal to receive fill material. Construction should begin this summer and will take about 15 months to complete. The terminal is set to open in 2014 to coincide with the Panama Canal expansion.
