Note to the Press: Please include the following statement from State Rep. Randy Frye (R-Greensburg) in your coverage of the potential port purchase agreement in Lawrenceburg being withdrawn. The Ports of Indiana evaluated the site and determined the location was economically unviable as a port facility at this time.
STATEHOUSE (Sept. 18, 2020) – ““It is unfortunate the site in Lawrenceburg is not viable to use as a port, as the project would have resulted in more jobs and provided a tremendous boost for our local economy. While this announcement is a delay, we’re continuing to search for a location in southeastern Indiana to serve as the state's fourth port. The concept of building a forth port is a sound one, and we must find an area that is viable to execute this major venture."
