The future of Hampton Roads


Cranes for Container Ships I
Originally uploaded by jimfrazier.
Interesting article in today's Virginian Pilot about plans to build a container facility on Craney island. The size of the project boggles my mind:
When complete, the container terminal at Craney Island will have a mile-and-a-half of wharf space and 20 container cranes. The project is scheduled to be built in four phases between 2013 and 2028. The port authority’s timetable calls for three years of engineering and design work beginning next year and then preparation of the site to receive dredged material.
A mile-and-a-half of wharf space and 20 container cranes! That's huge.
