US transportation infrastructure to end 2017 on high note

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.
