Palm Harbor Marina officials are breaking ground Friday on a new multimillion-dollar facility in West Palm Beach, Fla., that they say will help fuel the local economy and bring permanent jobs to the area.

The marina, scheduled for completion this fall, will be able to host hundreds of boats from 60 feet to more than 200 feet.

West Palm Beach mayor Lois Frankel, along with marine industry dignitaries, will be on hand to dedicate the project. The hour-long ceremony begins at 10 a.m. at the marina site.
