BOWLING GREEN, KY – Congressman Brett Guthrie (KY-02) today announced that Nucor Corporation in Brandenburg is receiving a $2,363,800 grant from the Department of Transportation (DoT).
The grant is funded by the DoT Maritime Administration’s America’s Marine Highway Grants program. The grant will be used to support the construction of a marine terminal with two repurposed casino barges.
“I am proud to announce that Nucor has received this competitive grant,” said Guthrie. “Construction of the new marine terminal will create 20 new jobs in material handling, stevedoring, and fleet boat operations. Having this new terminal will also support shipping on Kentucky’s inland waterways. This is great news for Nucor and the surrounding communities, and I look forward to visiting the new terminal upon completion.”
