Your Port: Specifics
Let’s break this down into different categories. As mentioned before this is already a port that is currently in use. Right now, there is a depth 12’-15’, Width 250’ and directly connects to the gulf from US 19. It ends approximately 7.5 Miles off-shore at the Power Plant Barge Channel Intersection. There is a key cut in the middle of the barge canal that is 1650’ in length and 250’ wide. Just to give you some perspective – it’s approximately 6.5 miles from US 19 to the Gulf.
The Port Authority Board is made up of five members. The five Citrus County commissioners serve on the Port Authority board. The County Administrator sits as the Port Director and the County Attorney sits as the Port Attorney.
