New Port of Muscatine Study Presentation Today

The right time has come for the development of an intermodal container terminal and port district on the Mississippi River according to the Port of Muscatine Planning and Feasibility Study that will be presented to the City Council today.

Muscatine is in a very unique position in regards to the development of a port,” Dave Gobin, Community Development Director, said. “Since there are no other ports of this kind north of St. Louis, there is a need for this type of terminal port and the infrastructure is in place here in Muscatine to develop this project.

The City of Muscatine, along with matching funds from Kent Corporation, applied to the Iowa Department of Transportation for a Linking Iowa’s Freight Transportation Systems (LIFTS) grant for the Port of Muscatine Planning and Feasibility Study in October 2015.

The basis of the study was to establish whether the vision of a multi-modal container terminal port facility located on the Mississippi River in Muscatine was feasible. The grant was awarded to the city in early 2016.

The proposed site of the terminal is located on property owned by Kent Corporation on a bend of the Mississippi River south of the city on a large flat area separated from the river by a levee.

The study was prepared by HDR, Inc., out of Kansas City, Kansas.
