Central New York Regional Agricultural Export Center Expansion

The Port of Oswego is preparing to embark on its largest grain expansion project since its conception. The Central New York Regional Agriculture Export Center Expansion Project will repurpose two existing bulk storage structures and half a transit warehouse, construct two new grain towers with new dump pits for rail and truck, build a ship loading system, and improve the conveyance systems for five storage structures.

The Port is responding to the needs of its shippers and manufacturers, and completion of this project will be a significant improvement to its existing system through increased capacity, efficiency, and flexibility. Construction of this $35.53 million project will triple the movement of agriculture products between the Port and suppliers in Central New York and Connecticut, and increase the Port’s export business to international markets. This investment will facilitate the efficient and cost-effective increase in storage capacity and import/export capabilities that will in turn accommodate increased economic activities for the Port’s customers and the surrounding area. As well as supporting an increase in agri-business development, this project will create at least 12 full-time jobs, reduce overall emissions, reduce wear and tear on aging highway infrastructure, and in the short term provide an estimated $11.5 million, or 25,00 man-days, in construction jobs.
