MARAD Expands America’s Marine Highway System

During a three-day visit to Alaska, U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg announced the designation of two new Marine Highway Routes, as part of the U.S. Marine Highway Program (MHP). The newly designated M-11 and M-79 routes will help speed up the movement of goods, strengthen supply chains, and support local economies in Alaska, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. These designations allow any eligible applicant on these routes to apply for future U.S. Marine Highway Program grants.
