The Ports of Indiana Commission has approved more than $500,000 in contracts to five Hossier firms for work to be done at its terminals in Burns Harbor and Mount Vernon.
At Burns Harbor on Lake Michigan it awarded $254,661 for dock improvements to Larson Danielson Construction Co. Inc. of LaPorte; $29,600 for engineering services to John A. Doyle and Assoc. Inc. of Michigan City; $144,270 for geotechnical engineering to Weaver Boos Consultants LLC of South Bend.

The port commission has also ratified a request by Metro International Trade Services LLC to temporarily modify the boundary of Foreign-Trade Zone 152 to two different warehouse locations in Gary. The temporary modification will allow Metro, who operates a foreign-trade zone at the Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor, to experience similar benefits in its Gary locations at W. 151 Street and 240 Waite Street.
