SCPA is currently building the only permitted new container terminal on the U.S. East and Gulf Coasts. Since receiving the final permit approvals in 2007, the Port has completed demolition, site preparation, containment wall

construction and design activities for the first phase of the terminal. Phase One construction of the terminal began in August 2019 and includes the construction of the site improvements, buildings and canopies, the Port Access Road and Tidewater Road extensions, the wharf, and the purchase of 5 ship-to-shore cranes and 25 rubber-tired gantry cranes. Phase One of the terminal is expected to open in 2021. At full build out, the terminal will consist of more than 280 acres and will boost capacity in the port by a full 50%.
