Congressman Brian Mast shows support for Port of Palm Beach rail infrastructure

Congressman Brian Mast's Congressional Aide Jordan Séjour and Port Executive Director Manuel Almi

United States Representative Brian Mast wrote a letter to the U.S. Department of Transportation in support of Port of Palm Beach’s application for a $13.2 million Infrastructure for Development Program grant (PIDP). If awarded the PIDP grant, the funding would allow Port of Palm Beach to expand its rail capability by 116 percent. In the letter, Congressman Mast states, "This proposal will double the current capacity of containers of the Port’s intermodal rail by conducting a new intermodal rail transfer facility that will replace the current one." 

The letter of support was signed almost three months after Port of Palm Beach Executive Director Manuel Almira and Director of Planning and Development Carl Baker discussed the project with Congressman Mast’s Congressional Aide Jordan Séjour. Séjour personally delivered the letter to Almira Friday, July 24th.
