Bright Future for Port of Duluth-Superior (USA)

U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken and Representative Rick Nolan announced $10 million to improve infrastructure at the Port of Duluth-Superior. The announcement comes after Senators Klobuchar and Franken sent letters to the Department in support of the project.

“Strengthening the Port of Duluth-Superior helps strengthen the economy in Duluth and helps businesses across Minnesota,” said Klobuchar. “This support will help ensure the Port has 21st century facilities and can continue to play a vital role in delivering Minnesota’s products to markets across the world.”

“As the busiest port on the Great Lakes, the Duluth Port connects some of Minnesota’s most important industries to partners and consumers across America and the world,” said Sen. Franken. “This grant will create jobs and improve the global competitiveness of our regional industries.”

“This grant means jobs, here in Duluth and all over northern Minnesota,” said Nolan. “This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to renovate and revitalize our essential Port of Duluth-Superior, making the Port and the city of Duluth more competitive by expanding the number of shippers, diversity of cargo, and volume of shipments in and out of the harbor. The next step will be to address capacity issues in nearby waters upstream; I look forward to leading this effort as we debate the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) later this month.”
