Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority gets grants for Shipyard
The Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority has received state grants that will pay for half of the costs for a new forklift at the Port of Toledo’s General Cargo Dock and for building a retaining wall and other work at the Toledo Shipyard.
Of the Ohio Department of Transportation Maritime Assistance Program funds, $235,000 will go toward the Tier 4 heavy-lift forklift while $333,125 will be spent on the work at the shipyard’s drydock.
Earlier this year the port authority received a $4 million grant from the ODOT program to match $16 million in federal funds for dock-wall reconstruction and construction of a liquid transloading facility at the General Cargo Docks and $5.5 million to buy a new mobile harbor crane.
“The Maritime Assistance Program has been crucial in assisting the port authority to advance the modernization of our seaport facilities under our capital-improvement plan,” said Thomas Winston, the port authority’s president.
