Port Canaveral is in the boat business, but it has an impending road-traffic problem in its future as Central Florida embarks on more roadway improvement projects.

That’s why Canaveral Port Authority CEO John Murray has identified the need to upgrade the drawbridge along State Road 401, which acts as the main entry point for the hub via State Road 528.

That drawbridge is used by millions of port customers annually and any traffic issues that occur have a detrimental impact on overall port business.
