INDIANAPOLIS—Gov. Eric Holcomb announced Thursday that Indiana may be gaining a fourth port.
The Ports of Indiana, a statewide port authority which serves the state on the Ohio River and Lake Michigan, agreed to buy 725 acres near Lawrenceburg. That land could serve as a fourth port to Indiana and help provide new jobs and development opportunities to Hoosiers.
Indiana currently has three ports which are located in Jeffersonville, Mount Vernon and Burns Harbor. The last port was opened in 1985.
Ports of Indiana agreed to purchase 725 acres of land that used to be home to the American Electric Power plant. The cost of the land was $8 million.
