  • P-2980

    Expiration date: 1/11/2017

    J.D. Street & Company, Inc. is proposing to modify their existing War Department Permit to increase the size of their existing captive barge fleeting area, from 40’ (width) x 195’ (length) to 54’ x 225’. The existing barge is reaching the end of its service life and will need to be replaced. A barge measuring 54’ x 225’ is a common, commercially available, barge size.

The facility will be reauthorized using permit number P-2980 and file number MVS 2016-976.
