Port Canaveral to break ground on their newest terminal, 'Launch Pad'
PORT CANAVERAL, Fla. (FOX 35 ORLANDO) - On Monday, Port Canaveral will break ground on its newest cruise terminal.

The $150 million terminal project is the largest single project in the history of Port Canaveral. It will include an elevated parking facility, wharf, and road improvements.
John Murray, the Captain at Port Canaveral, even said that there will be "video walls" and "plug-in stations" for those waiting to get on their ship.
A groundbreaking ceremony will be held at 11 a.m. at Port Canaveral.
