Maritime Infrastructure: Opportunies Exist to Improve the Effectiveness of Fedeal Efforts to Support the Marine Transportation System
Lorelei St. James (au)
The Maritime Transportation System (MTS) is integral to the efficient movement of the nationńˇ╗s freight. The MTS includes navigable waterways, ports, and port connectors, such as roads and railways that provide access to the Interstate highway system and the national rail network. According to the Dept. of Transportation (DOT), approx. 90% of Americańˇ╗s overseas imports and exports by tonnage move by ship, so the continued maintenance and improvement of the MTS is essential to sustaining the nationńˇ╗s competitive position in the global economy. This report examines (1) the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) and DOT programs that can be used to maintain or improve the MTS; (2) key challenges to maintaining and improving the MTS; and (3) opportunities to improve the effectiveness of the federal role in the MTS. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
