Over US$77 Million In Infrastructure Projects Underway At Indiana’s Lake Michigan Port

Posted on May 29, 2024

More than US$77 million in infrastructure and expansion projects are now being developed at Ports of Indiana-Burns Harbor as a new construction season commences in the Lake Michigan port.

Major projects in various phases of development include construction of a highway bridge entering the port, three new ship berths, a new bulk warehouse, two new railyards, industrial site development, and extensive dock and rail rehabilitation throughout the 600-acre (243-hectare) port.

“This port is going through a transformational multiyear expansion and the amount of construction happening right now exceeds every year since the port was built in the 1960s,” said Ports of Indiana CEO Jody Peacock. “These are critical projects that ensure our port remains an international gateway for ocean vessels, lakers and river barges, and that our multimodal infrastructure can meet growing freight demands in the Northwest Indiana and greater Chicago market.”

Some of the projects are co-funded by the US Department of Transportation and the Indiana Department of Transportation.
