On August 11, 2010, U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood identified 18 marine corridors, 8 projects, and 6 initiatives for further development as part of “America’s Marine Highway Program.” In addition, the Maritime Administration made available $7 million for which these projects will be able to compete through a Notice of Funding Availability. Please see the entire press release at the Newsroom.
The Marine Highway Program was fully implemented in April 2010 through publication of a Final Rule in the Federal Register. The Secretary’s designations were made pursuant to the Final Rule, as required by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.
The Final Rule (MARAD-2010-0035) for America’s Marine Highway Program was published April 9, 2010.
