Grant to Aid Expansion at Duluth

Port of Duluth’s Clure Public Marine Terminal

The US Department of Transportation’s Maritime Administration has allocated a $10.5 million grant to the Duluth Seaway Port Authority to help fund construction of a 56,000-square-foot warehouse at the Clure Public Marine Terminal and to rehabilitate a section of the terminal’s dock wall.

The new warehouse will complement an existing 430,000 square foot warehousing area while the dock wall rehabilitation will fortify 7 acres of laydown space for heavy-lift and project cargoes, including wind energy components.

Last year cargo volume at the Great Lakes port exceeded 33.5 million short tons, the third highest throughput since 2015.
