Federal grant to help Port of Mobile add vehicle-handling facility

The U.S. Department of Transportation has announced a $12.7 million grant that will help add a new feature to the Alabama State Docks in Mobile: A vehicle-friendly loading site that could serve the state’s growing automotive industry.

According to information released Tuesday by the DOT, the project being funded by the grant “converts an abandoned bulk handling facility at the Port of Mobile into a roll-on/roll-off mobile vehicle processing facility.”

It will be able to handle automobiles, military vehicles, trucks, and other rolling stock that can be driven or towed directly onto ships.
