Duluth Intermodal Project Kicks Off

The Twin Ports maritime community together with business leaders, elected officials and dignitaries from across the state and nation, will gather later today to officially break ground on the Port of Duluth Intermodal Project.

Those in attendance at the 10 a.m. ceremony will be celebrating not only the revitalization of this 28-acre dock but also Duluth’s working waterfront. The long-awaited rebuild and expansion of Dock C&D will put a vacant, underutilized dock back into maritime service after more than 20 years.

The completion of this project will enhance the Port Authority’s intermodal capabilities, expand its capacity to handle more heavy-lift and project cargo, and enhance the competitiveness of this entire region by increasing freight capacity via the Great Lakes St. Lawrence Seaway system.

$17.7 million redevelopment project was funded, in part, by a $10 million transportation Infrastructure Generation Economic Recovery (TIGER) Discretionary grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT).

An additional $2.75 million in funding has been provided through the Minnesota Port Development Assistance Program (PDAP); $990,000 was awarded by the State of Minnesota’s (DEED) Contamination Cleanup Grant program; and the Duluth Seaway Port Authority is investing over $3.9 million of its own capital in this infrastructure renewal project.
