Port authority to unveil maritime strategy for state
14 Aug 2018
New London — Increasing use and profitability of State Pier is the top priority of a maritime strategy for the state that the Connecticut Port Authority is unveiling Thursday morning.
The Day received an advance copy of the strategy, which the port authority will formally announce at a 10 a.m. news conference in Hartford. It details much of what the port authority already is doing or talked about doing, such as increasing the volume of cargo coming in to the state's deep-water ports in New London, Bridgeport and New Haven, which handled over 2.2 million metric tons of goods in 2017, and investing in smaller harbor improvement projects.
