The Port Authority began in 1976 with a small group of men and women willing to donate their time to better the business climate of Jefferson County. As the years went by, these members consistently applied their time and talents to further develop the entire eastern border of Jefferson County that was bounded by the Mississippi River.
The Perfect Time Has Come
Historically, there had been two major problems to development: availability of land and viable transportation to nearby Interstate-55. When the City of Herculaneum received a grant to build a connecting bridge to reach I-55, the project suddenly took on new life. Soon after, a major land owner, Doe Run Lead Company, began to study alternate production methods that would require a smaller footprint for their operations, thus freeing up some availability to the riverfront property. At this point, the Jefferson County Port Authority made the smart move to become part of Doe Run's Feasibility Study by acting as a tagalong and broadening the scope of the study to cover various sites of interest on the river.
The Trifecta is Born
The Phase I Feasibility was a success, presenting viable opportunities for port activities in Jefferson County. As hoped for by the founders in 1976, the perfect confluence of River, Rail, and Road began to form a vision of multiple ports comprising one multimodal Port System for Jefferson County.
