The Port of Baltimore will receive $6.6 million in federal funds to help deepen a container berth at the Seagirt Marine Terminal, Gov. Larry Hogan announced Friday.

The state is contributing $7.8 million and port operator Ports America Chesapeake is funding the remaining $18.4 million for the project. Construction is set to begin in the second half of 2019 and should take one year to complete.
