Port of Pascagoula is seeking construction bids on the first phase of a US$44 million intermodal improvement project in Bayou Casotte, Mississippi.

The project aims to relocate the downtown Pascagoula railroad interchange and create a more efficient rail connection into the port, as well as building a wood pellet export terminal on Bayou Casotte.

Port of Pascagoula director Mark McAndrews said the port is advertising for bids concerning the demolition of the Terminal ‘E’ and ‘F’ shed and for bulkhead repairs at the Bayou Casotte facility.

According to McAndrews, most of the early work will be happening inside the port gates, so it will not be visible to the public early on.

The port is receiving US$14 million from the US Department of Transportation to relocate the railroad interchange.

This project includes rail improvements, a rail unloading pit to facilitate bulk deliveries and the shed demolition/bulkhead repairs.

Federal funds will be combined with US$10 million from the state, US$15 million from the port and US$5 million from the private sector to better transport goods in and out of Bayou Casotte.
