|GOVERNOR SCOTT HELPS BREAK GROUND ON ELLER DRIVE OVERPASS PROJECTThis week, I helped break ground on a road construction project that will help make Florida the trade capital of the Southeast United States.
The Eller Drive Overpass Project at the entrance to Port Everglades in Broward County will help move traffic to and from the port and improve the local economyas well as improve Florida’s position as an international trade hub. This project is critical to the movement of cargo and goods from Port Everglades to the rest of Florida.
The improvement of Florida’s ports is essential to our state’s economic future. One of Florida’s biggest economic drivers is international trade and investment. With projects like the Eller Drive Overpass, I am confident that Florida will be able to reap the economic benefits of the expansion of the Panama Canal in 2014.
We are working to ensure that Florida’s ports will be able to handle this future growth and the increase of international trade that will come along with it.
