    Two more feet of space for ships to travel the St. Johns River may mean the difference in bringing thousands of jobs and millions of dollars in economic development to JAXPORT.

The JAXPORT Board of Directors today (Monday) voted to seek dredging the St. Johns River to 47 feet, instead of the 45 feet recommended by the Army Corp of Engineers.

Marine economic development consultant John Martin says the extra two feet would allow for larger cargo ships to use MAYPORT.
