New KC Multimodal Inland Port Project on Missouri River Receives Funding

Port KC was recently awarded a $9.88 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to help finance the redevelopment of a 415-acre site along the Missouri River in Jackson and Clay Counties.
Formerly a shuttered steel mill, Port KC plans to develop an inland, multimodal port called Missouri River Terminal (MRT) to attract economic and employment reinvestment within a 25-mile industrial corridor on the long-neglected east side of Kansas City.
