Agreement to deepen Charleston Harbor being signed

Jun 20, 2011 4:09:00 AM - thestate.com
Lawmakers are joining state and federal officials as work on deepening the Charleston Harbor moves forward.

South Carolina's two U.S. senators join congressmen Jim Clyburn and Tim Scott Monday at the signing of an agreement between the Army Corps of Engineers and the State Ports Authority.

The corps recently announced that it will spend $150,000 in the remaining months of this federal fiscal year on a study of deepening the harbor. Lawmakers hope to get an additional $1.2 million in the budget for the federal fiscal year beginning Oct. 1 to continue the work.

The total cost of the study over as long as five years is expected to be $20 million. That cost will be split between Washington and the state Ports Authority.
