The PRPA would like to extend their thoughts to the crew members of M/V
El Faro and their loved ones; along with members of SeaStar Shipping Services, LLC. and TOTE Maritime.

Nearly $100 million committed
to Delaware River Channel
Deepening Project

The Delaware River Deepening Project will receive a record $97.5 million
in federal funding this year and
in 2016 to continue deepening
the channel to 45 feet.
The project is moving forward
rapidly, with full support of the
Obama Administration in
Washington and the Wolf
Administration in Harrisburg.

The channel deepening not only
allows the Port of Philadelphia to maintain its competitiveness for
global maritime commerce, it opens
doors for new opportunities and
the cargoes and jobs that
go with them.
