U.S. Senator Rick Scott recently wrote a letter to the U.S. Department of Transportation in support of Port of Palm Beach’s application for a $13.2 million Port Infrastructure Development Program (PIDP) grant. The federal funding would allow the port to more than double its intermodal rail capacity from 44,000 TEUs per year to 95,000 TEUs per year. The project will replace old rail with new, relocate the truck interchange, and install new radiation portal monitors for increased security, all of which will allow for more efficient operations.
