Work is underway at the New York City terminal of McInnis Cement, whose eastern Quebec mill is nearing production and positioned to supply markets from the Mid-Atlantic to the Great Lakes. Remediated from its days as an illegal city dump, the south Bronx parcel along the East River is part of a network of terminals McInnis is siting for their access to efficient waterways and potential to minimize customers’ tanker truck miles.

In comments submitted to the U.S. Senate Environment & Public Works (EPW) Committee, ARTBA contends that the Environmental Protection Agency’s contentious “Waters of the United States” (WOTUS) rule should be repealed as it is scientifically and legally flawed; threatens recent bipartisan achievements in reducing transportation project delays; and, is likely to be used as a litigation tool to delay projects, making construction more expensive.
