Duluth awarded infrastructure grant

The US Department of Transportation’s Maritime Administration has allocated a USD10.5 million grant to the Duluth Seaway Port Authority. 

The grant will help fund the construction of a 56,000 sq ft (5,202.6 sq m) warehouse at the Clure Public Marine Terminal, as well as the refurbishment of a 1,775 ft (541 m) of dock walls at berths 10 and 11. 

The dock wall rehabilitation will reinforce 7 acres (2.8 ha) of laydown space for inbound and outbound heavy lift cargo and will also protect the recently renovated dock deck.

Deb DeLuca, executive director of the Duluth Seaway Port Authority, said: “This grant supports projects that improve and broaden the infrastructure of the Clure Public Marine Terminal and the value it provides. These projects will also allow us to expand our service capabilities at our multimodal logistics hub, which in turn helps us support industries throughout the Upper Midwest.”
