USA: Officials Highlight Investments at Port of Baltimore

Governor Martin O’Malley joined Vice President Joseph Biden at the Port of Baltimore to highlight the $10 million in federal grants given to Maryland through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER), which will improve the infrastructure and strengthen the economy for middle class families.

During the event, the two were joined by U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin, U.S. Congressman John Sarbanes, U.S. Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger, U.S. Congressman Elijah Cummings, and other elected officials.

The TIGER grant program allows for the Port of Baltimore to increase its cargo handling capacity and provide rail access at its Fairfield Marine Terminal.

With today’s announcement, we are rebuilding our infrastructure in order to compete in a modern economy,” said Governor O’Malley.

Together, with the Obama Administration and our federal partners, we’re moving the Port of Baltimore forward, creating jobs and connecting our State with cities and ports half a world away.”

With the Transportation Infrastructure Investment Act of 2013, Maryland is activating long-term strategies to invest in Maryland’s transportation systems, and supporting 57,200 jobs with $4.4 billion in new investments in the next six years.
