According to information available from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District, and the Virginia Port Authority (VPA) received a permit approval recently from the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (VDEQ) for the Craney Island Eastward Expansion.

The Virginia water protection permit authorizes construction of the expansion and the mitigation plan components. One such piece is the creation of two new dredged material disposal cells to extend the life of the Craney Island Dredged Material Management Area beyond 2025. This will ultimately lay the groundwork for construction of a new port facility for Hampton Roads.

Pending funding from the VPA and Corps, the first phase of the marine terminal is planned to be operational by 2017.
