Grant for Kaskaskia Port Announced

U.S. Congressman Bill Enyart (IL-12) announced yesterday that the Kaskaskia Regional Port District has been awarded $322,000 to develop road and water infrastructure for industrial growth.

Southern Illinois needs job growth and economic opportunity in the region,” said Enyart. “The grant awarded yesterday is a great opportunity for the Kaskaskia Port region to continue developing jobs and attract new business to the area.”

“The water line and entrance road to the port will create 14 new jobs by Gateway FS, and add critical infrastructure to this location,” said Ed Weilbacher, General Manager of the Kaskaskia Port. “The water line and road will serve our industrial users and will help attract new customers to the site.

The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA) has awarded the grant. This project will permit current industrial expansion and future growth of companies that are currently restricted by the lack of potable water.
