Cape Fear

The NC Maritime report seems headed in one direction. Build on the Cape Fear. Wilmington Expansion is the cheaper method however channel maintenance would be colossal and expansion impossible. Southport appears most logical except for being close to power station. Seems like Brunswick County could be the big winner with the tremendous infrastructure improvements required.
If Cape Fear is the location the number of ships and the levels of pollution are going to be the same no matter the physical location. It appears the state will favor the building of a mega port in our future.
To the benefit of all river traffic it seems only logical to build the port on the Southport site. Considering the economic impact to Southeast NC we should all get behind this project and work with the state to make sure its done right!!
