Morgan City Harbor and Terminal Completes Upgrades

Thursday, December 14, 2000
Strategically located along the Louisiana Gulf Coast at the junction of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway and the Atchafalaya river, the Morgan City Harbor and Terminal District has just completed construction of a medium draft vessel port. This major Louisiana inter-modal transportation facility features an 800-ft. concrete wharf; a 20,000-sq. ft. fire protected transit shed, two-paved cargo marshalling yards covering 117,000 sq. ft., two-rail sidings connecting directly to the cross country Burlington-Northern/Santa Fe main railroad line, a large crane and forklifts to handle containerized cargo and ready highway access to the US Highway 90 (Interstate 49) freeway. A true multi-functional, inter-modal, facility, the MCHTD Port has already handled a variety of shipments including containerized cargo, shipments of bagged rice, bulk and palletized oilfield drilling mud, and truck and car vehicles. These cargoes have arrived by barge, rail and truck for transfer to ocean going vessels. Begun in 1992 as an economic catalyst for Louisiana's economy, the MCHTD Port represents over an $11M investment.
