Indiana urged to build fourth port

January 14 - Governor Mike Pence has called on the Ports of Indiana to "vigorously explore" building the state's fourth port in southeastern Indiana.

"Indiana's ports have also been spectacular catalysts for job growth. That is why I have called upon the Ports of Indiana to vigorously explore the building of a fourth port in the far southeastern part of our state, which could unleash enormous economic investment throughout the southeast region of our state," said Pence.

Ports of Indiana currently operates two ports on the Ohio River - the Port of Indiana-Mount Vernon and Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville - and one on Lake Michigan: the Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor.

"It is very gratifying that governor Pence sees our ports and marine highways as vital parts of his transportation, infrastructure and economic development initiatives," said Ports of Indiana ceo Rich Cooper.

"He has asked us to explore the development of a new port in a southeast Indiana area that has long been very intriguing to us and is highly worthy of a closer look. We share the governor's belief that there is tremendous opportunity for Indiana to build on its past port successes and further leverage its access to railroads, highways, and the Gulf of Mexico via the Ohio River to generate economic development opportunities in a new region of our state."
