Atkins prepared a strategic program and financing plan for Port St. Joe’s near- and mid-term on-port capital improvements for the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Three. The work was tailored to facilitate inclusion of on-port projects into the annual FDOT work program.
The Atkins-led team developed and compiled maritime Gulf of Mexico market trend information for presentation to FDOT.
Completing the initiative over a six-month period, the Port Authority, St. Joe Company, newly created Port Advisory Team, FDOT, and Atkins team initiated a forward-looking process to champion the job-creating opportunities Port of Port St. Joe could provide to local and regional residents. This group also assisted in raising awareness among public officials and private sector entities about the port’s strategic investment needs and its capabilities to achieve port and regional economic growth.
