MARAD Hosts Public Outreach Meetings for the Panama Canal Expansion Study and America’s Marine Highway Program.


Maritime industry stakeholders are invited to participate in a series of day-long outreach sessions sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation's Maritime Administration (MARAD).  The morning sessions will focus on the potential impacts of the Panama Canal Expansion on U.S. ports and infrastructure, while the afternoon sessions will explore opportunities to incorporate America’s Marine Highways into the National Transportation System.  These interactive workshops provide maritime stakeholders, like shippers, port/logistics operators, supply chain management organizations, associations, and state and local government, an opportunity to provide feedback on MARAD’s Panama Canal Expansion Study and America’s Marine Highway initiative. 
 

The first two meetings will be held in San Francisco, CA on Thursday, September 22, 2011; and in New York, NY on Tuesday, September 27, 2011.  Detailed information regarding these events as well as registration instructions can be found at www.PanamaCanalStudy.com/registration or in the Federal Register at http://federalregister.gov/a/2011-22967
