The Wilmington Port Project: Expanding Prosperity


Author(s):
Abstract:
Ports at Wilmington and Morehead City create 80,000 jobs statewide and generate around $300 million in tax revenues. In 1994, the Morehead City Port was deepened, and business increased. By 2005, the Wilmington Port will be deepened from 40 feet to 44 feet, and 26 miles of river deepened from 38 feet to 42 feet. Erik Stromerg, executive director of the State Ports Authority, discusses the economic impact of the project.
