The Turning Notch
LOCATION: Port Everglades, Broward County, Florida
In October of 2018, Ryan Incorporated Southern was contracted by Moss/Kiewit, a Joint Venture to construct the Port Everglades Southport Turning Notch Expansion for $112,833,080.
The existing property was being used for ship container storage and was built over an existing landfill years ago. To facilitate completion of this turning notch, Moss/Kiewit not only contracted with Ryan but contracted with several other firms, all of which had specific and specialized work. Collectively this project will be completed by 2023 and a turning notch of 30 acres will provide the Port the ability to accommodate five additional cargo ships and potentially three container gantry cranes.
Prior to the award, nine months of work revolving around site visits, bid preparation and scheduling discussions finally brought this project to fruition. Our scope of work consists of the following:
- Construction of temporary access roads
- Site demolition of existing structures, light poles, utilities, asphalt…etc.
- Turning Notch and adjacent property trash/debris/muck removal to a Class 1 landfill which equates to approximately 1,800,000 tons of material.
- Blasting of the Limestone/Cementitious material, which is located below the trash/debris/muck, to a depth of 50 feet.
- Excavation and removal from site, the Limestone/Cementitious material which equates to approximately 3,500,000 tons.
- Earthwork outside of the turning notch will be completed to accommodate future container storage.
This is certainly a flagship project for Ryan Incorporated Southern. We are grateful for this opportunity and being part of such a brilliant team.
