Friday, June 13, 2014

The Maritime Administration (MARAD) announced it is now accepting project applications for Marine Highway designations until September 30, 2016.

Eligible projects should establish new or enhance existing Marine Highway services that reduce landside congestion and increase the use of domestic marine transportation. Proposed projects no longer have to have parallel landside routes.

While all applications must be sponsored and submitted by public entities, public/private partnerships are encouraged.

Additional project submission guidelines and information can be found at http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=MARAD-2013-0011-0015.
