Jacksonville-based Crowley Maritime Corp. has started construction on a new $48.5 million pier in San Juan, Puerto Rico to handle the company’s liquefied natural gas ships.
The project, overseen by subsidiary Crowley Puerto Rico Services Inc,, will include a 900-foot-long, 114-foot-wide concrete pier, a news release said Tuesday. The structure is being built in anticipation of the 2017 arrival of the LNG ships owned by Crowley that will make regular trips between Jacksonville and the U.S. territory.

The project is utilizing about 75 employees to complete the work and when finished, there will be about 100 employees needed to manage the pier and associated services.
