The Port was awarded $10 million from a federal U.S. Department of Transportation FASTLANE Grant and will match the grant with $10 million in state funding.
Specifically, the funds will be used to construct the following projects:
- Adding two new rail yards, allowing the port to handle and store thousands more rail cars and move freight more efficiently in and out of the port
- Adding 1,800 more feet of dock, increasing the port’s capacity to handle cargo faster
- Adding a truck marshaling yard, a place for trucks to park while waiting that will help relieve congestion and reduce emissions
- Adding a 3,400 sq. ft. lounge, a place for truck drivers to wait more comfortably
