Funding will be used to construct 100,000 sq ft warehouse at Tioga Marine Terminal
Washington, D.C. - Today, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) announced $20,341,494 for the Philadelphia Regional Port Authority to construct a new 100,000-square-foot warehouse with rail access, employee parking and loading docks at Tioga Marine Terminal. The project will also relocate and construct a new modernized gate complex and relocate an existing maintenance facility. The funding comes from an INFRA grant from the Department of Transportation.
“The Port of Philadelphia is a critical link in our Nation’s supply chains,” said Senator Casey. “By increasing capacity at the Port, we’re allowing more commerce to flow through Philadelphia, getting goods to families more efficiently and supporting local jobs. This is another example of how the Biden Administration is delivering on its promise to invest in our infrastructure and strengthen our economy.”
In June 2021, the Port of Philadelphia received a $49,000,000 INFRA grant to develop a new multi-use berth at the Southport Terminal, which will allow larger ships to dock at the port. Both INFRA grants will allow the Port of Philadelphia to increase its capacity, supporting the entire region’s economy.
