Tulsa Port of Catoosa posts 23% surge in April volumes

The inland river port handled 180,328 tons of waterborne cargo in April, a 23 percent year-over-year increase, the port said.

   The Tulsa Port of Catoosa handled 180,328 tons of waterborne cargo in April, a 23 percent year-over-year increase, the port said.
   “In 2015, we weathered through slow economic times, a trend that has followed us through our activities to date this year,” Port Authority Chairman Chip McElroy said. “We hope the heavy rainfalls of last year will not return, thereby improving waterway reliability for shipping purposes.”
   Meanwhile, total shipping in April for the entire McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System, which is a 445-mile navigation channel that starts at the Tulsa Port of Catoosa and runs southeast through Oklahoma and Arkansas to the Mississippi River, reached 1.02 million tons, a 12.2 percent increase from April 2015.
   Earlier this month, the Tulsa Port of Catoosa completed its main dock renovation project, which consisted of replacing the concrete surface of the 720-foot dock, the installation of over 6,000 linear feet of new rail and the complete renovation of the 200-ton bridge crane.
