Increased traffic through airports and ports has helped to drive related construction spending on upgrades and expansions. For example, in May, the Broward County (FL) Board of County Commissioners authorized a $437 million expansion of Port Everglades, in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The expansion will allow the port to better accommodate the larger post-Panamax ships through the installation of new berths and the tripling of existing deepwater turnaround areas. Port Everglades processed more than 1 million 20-foot shipping containers in 2016, bringing in $163 million in revenue.
