Sen. Bill Nelson to Visit Jacksonville and Discuss Ports

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Thirty five- hundred new jobs could be coming to Jacksonville.

Senator Bill Nelson will be in the river city tomorrow to review port improvements. He will also meet and discuss the Army Corps of Engineers' plan to get rid of the Mile Point navigational hazard.

Mile point is a section of the St. Johns River near Mayport. The area has dangerous currents. Large ships can only pass through in a four hour window twice a day.

Nelson says opening the channel could allow Jacksonville ports to expand domestic and international trade.
