Jacksonville port awards next TraPac contract
The Port of Jacksonville has signed an agreement with The Tower Group Inc. to begin work on the second phase of the TraPac Container Terminal being developed for Mitsui O.S.K. Lines.
The contract is for construction of 11 buildings at the new terminal, including an administration building, maintenance and repair facilities, a U.S. Customs examination station, entrance and exit structures and labor facilities. The Tower Group will also pave the adjacent 17 acres around the buildings and construct TraPac Way, the facility's entrance from New Berlin Road.
Construction on the second phase work is scheduled to begin in October. The terminal is scheduled to be operational by late 2008.
