Ports of Indiana Mission Statement “To develop and maintain a world-class port system that operates as an agile, strategically-driven, self-funded enterprise dedicated to growing Indiana’s economy.”

Burns Harbor staff celebrates anniversaries Two Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor employees celebrated anniversaries in April: George Brown, maintenance leadman, 15 years, and Angie McMullan, administrative assistant, five years. A Michigan City native, Brown previously worked as a maintenance supervisor at a 500-acre apartment complex. He and his wife Lisa married 24 years ago this May and they have two children, Thomas, a pipe-fitters apprentice, and Elizabeth, a student at Ball State University. Brown’s hobbies include waterskiing, canoeing, hiking and camping. McMullan earned her bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership and supervision from Purdue University and spent five years working in new accounts at Centier Bank before joining the port. She and her husband Eric have three children: Drew, nine; Caleb, seven; and Mazie, one. In her free time, she enjoys fostering animals for local rescue groups, reading and endurance training.

railways and highways. Shifting the cargo of a single 1000-foot vessel would add more than 2,300 trucks to our highways. Due to inadequate appropriations from the HMTF by Congress, navigation channels grow narrower and shallower from sediment accumulation. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recently reported almost 30 percent of commercial vessel calls at U.S. ports are constrained due to inadequate channel depths. This means vessels laden with American-made goods cannot carry all they are capable of holding because they would be too heavy to keep from running aground, nor can ships with imports for the U.S. market enter many ports due to the same concerns. This dilemma significantly impacts the cost of national exports and imports. Action is being taken by some of Indiana’s leaders as they work with their colleagues from districts along the Great Lakes, Gulf of Mexico and coasts to improve how our maritime infrastructure is maintained. There are currently two bills moving through Congress with language pertaining to the HMT. Indiana Senators Dan Coats and Joe Donnelly have signed on as co-sponsors of the Harbor Maintenance Act (S.218). The House version of the bill is known as the RAMP Act (H.R. 335), and includes Indiana Representative Larry Buschon as a co-sponsor. The Ports of Indiana is very grateful for the leadership that Senator Coats, Senator Donnelly and Congressman Bucshon have provided on this very important issue. The maritime shipping industry strongly supports the full use of the Harbor Maintenance Tax for its intended purpose. When it comes to keeping Indiana’s economy moving, we can’t afford not to maintain our waterways.


“I have been a proud supporter of the RAMP Act since I came to Congress. As a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I understand that the money contributed to the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund needs to stay in that trust fund and be used for its intended purpose. For far too long, Washington, D.C. has used that money as a slush fund, this practice must stop. Our rivers need to be dredged and our ports need to be repaired. A robust waterway system is the only way to keep America competitive and I fully support making the RAMP Act law once and for all.”

U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly D-IN

“Indiana’s waterways are essential parts of our state’s infrastructure, and I have heard from many in Indiana about the need to fully fund the dredging and maintenance of our navigable waterway systems in order to support continued economic growth in our state. I hope to see a Water Resources Development Act that funds harbor maintenance operations at levels equal to revenues generated by the Harbor Maintenance Tax. This tax is paid by those who ship goods into our harbors and is intended to fund the maintenance of our waterways. Congress should not be using these funds for other purposes.”

U.S. Senator Daniel Coats R-IN “The Ports of Indiana are responsible for over $6.3 billion in economic value and over 51,000 Hoosier jobs. I am pleased to join my colleagues in ensuring that the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund is used for its intended purpose of maintaining our state’s and our country’s ports and waterways. This legislation not only protects vital Hoosier jobs, it also provides the infrastructure to support more growth in one of the most business friendly states in America.” www.portsofindiana.com · Spring 2013

Ports Commission approves infrastructure projects, new tenant lease INDIANAPOLIS - The Ports of Indiana commission met Feb. 21 in Indianapolis to approve nearly $1 million in port projects and a lease for Jeffersonville’s newest port tenant. The commission finalized a lease agreement with Walsh Construction and VINCI Construction Grands Projets for five acres at the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville. The companies formed a joint venture for the design and construction of the nearby East End Crossing of the Ohio River Bridges Project. The new lease includes 29,000-square-feet of office and industrial space at the port to be used as the project’s construction headquarters. The commission also awarded a contract for replacing a storm culvert at the Jeffersonville port to Sedam Contracting Corp., of Hanover, Ind., in the amount of $285,569. The work will include replacing an old storm culvert under Port Road and repaving the intersection of Port Road and Middle Road. The damaged asphalt pavement will be replaced with reinforced concrete that is better suited to withstand the stop-and-go traffic of heavy loads. Three contracts were approved at the meeting for the Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor. The commission awarded a contract to Beaman Associates of Indianapolis to design a warehouse to provide additional storage options at the port. The 75,000-square-foot

facility will offer flexibility in storing a wide-variety of materials and is needed in response to growing interest in short-term indoor storage options for steel and other industrial products. The commission also approved contracts related to security cameras and signage that will be primarily funded through federal port security grants. The projects included contracts with Midwestern Electric from East Chicago, Ind., for $348,445 and Baldus Co., of Fort Wayne, Ind., for $31,100. For the Port of Indiana-Mount Vernon, the commission approved a change order involving emergency repair work on mooring cells to Foertsch Construction Co. in the amount of $518,677. A recent underwater inspection had indicated an additional need for immediate structural repairs similar to work Foertsch was already completing at the port, which allowed the urgent repairs to be completed under an existing contract. The commission also ratified a license agreement with Time Warner Cable for the installation of fiber-optic and coaxial cable lines, bringing high-speed internet services into the port. The new connection will significantly upgrade the internet access capabilities and reduce costs for current and future port companies.

On any given day our fleet will move a vast range of cargoes including modules & oversized loads up the Atlantic Seaboard, aluminum from Quebec and quartz inbound to Ohio.
