The M580 Marine Highway Project is funded through DOT/MARAD and the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act. The $13.5 million funding for the Port of Stockton is designed to create jobs and economic benefits, both locally and regionally. Both ports, working together, have determined that given the facilities in place at the Port of Stockton, Phase 1 of the project from the Port of Oakland to the Port of Stockton would be implemented first. The funding for the Port of Stockton will be used to procure (2) two 140-ton mobile harbor cranes, dockside improvements in the form of demolition projects to enhance operational efficiencies, rail extension completing an on-dock and off-dock rail loop system, and a near-dock rail served container yard. In addition, the Ports of Oakland, Stockton and West Sacramento, in concert with San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District and the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, will be providing $3.2 million dollars collectively to purchase a minimum of one barge (preferably two) to support the M580/I80 Marine Highway Project.
