On April 12 the Port of New Orleans held a dedication for the newly constructed Mississippi River Intermodal Terminal. The $24.8 million project was made possible with $16.7 million from Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery Program III grant funds. The intermodal terminal serves as an on-dock intermodal railyard providing the Port’s Napoleon Avenue Container Terminal with access to the six Class I rail lines serving the Port of New Orleans. The dedication was well-attended by political figures and Port partners alike.
