PORT OF MORGAN CITY RECEIVES $10 MILLION PIDP GRANT AWARD

FOR WESTERN DOCK EXPANSION – PHASE 3B

PORT OF MORGAN CITY, LA – Today, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced more than $703 million to fund 41 projects in 22 states and one territory that will improve port facilities through the Maritime Administration’s Port Infrastructure Development Program. The funding, made possible by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and additional Congressional appropriations, will benefit coastal seaports, Great Lakes ports, and inland river ports, helping improve supply chain reliability through increased port capacity and resilience, more efficient operations, reduced port emissions, and new workforce opportunities. 

Amongst the awardees was the Port of Morgan City Western Dock Expansion - Phase 3B Project in the amount of $10,000,000.  The Project funds the expansion of the Port of Morgan City's dock by adding 1.6 acres of concrete laydown area and building an additional 8,880-square-foot wharf-relieving platform structure to support a 440’ x 40’ wharf extension. The Project complements “Phase 3A” that was funded by the port and the State of Louisiana and completes all phases of the port’s “Western Dock Expansion” project.

Corps officials from Civil Works out of Washington DC, along with Corp officials from New Orleans, Lafayette and Memphis visited the Port of Morgan City on March 8th to witness a firsthand demonstration of the Brice specialty purpose Dredge Arulaq that successfully manages fluff in the Bar Channel.
