PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The Philly Shipyard in South Philadelphia is experiencing a rebirth.
On Friday morning, a bipartisan congressional delegation visited the shipyard and took a tour.
The group was able to look at the four national security multi-mission vessels that are currently being built by about 500 workers.
The group of representatives announced that the shipyard could be contracted for a fifth by next week.
Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon said the hope is to increase the workforce at the shipyard by 1,400.
