Juneau Moves Ahead with $50m Dock Plan

September 12, 2007

According to reports, Juneau leaders on continued to move forward with plans for a $50m cruise ship dock improvement plan that would allow two modern ships to dock at the same time by 2010. To do that, Port Director John Stone said some fees will increase dramatically.

The city's Docks and Harbors Board is proposing construction of a floating berth in front of the current cruise ship dock that would accommodate two big ships.

Use of the city dock now costs a ship 5.5 cents per ton to dock, but paying for the new improvements will boost that to 30 cents a ton. Other fees will change, however, including some going down. As an example, Stone said that means the new 1,868-passenger, 951-foot cruise ship Zuiderdam, which now costs $20,394 to dock in Juneau, would cost $28,233 in 2010. Source: Juneau Empire
