Coal Export Project Considered for State Grant (Oregon Business)
Coal export dock among projects being considered for state grant money
The controversial Port of St. Helens dock reconstruction is being considered for a portion of the state’s $4 million in transportation grants.
The coal would be mined in the Powder River Basin of Wyoming and Montana and moved by rail to Boardman, where it would be loaded onto barges for Clatskanie, and then onto ocean-going ships.
The Port of St. Helens project had been ranked seventh overall among 37 recommended for $42 million in funding last summer by a Connect Oregon review panel, and it landed in the top spot on the short list this time.
