STATE MANAGEMENT OF INLAND WATERWAYS PORT DEVELOPMENT

This paper reviews the involvements of various states in the responsibility of state and local governments for the development of onshore facilities that serve the inland water mode of transportation. The efforts of the state of Tennessee in the organizational structure of its department of transportation and its state assistance to local governments in port development are used to illustrate possible modes of involvement of a state government in waterways transportation. The conclusion of the paper is that in the future many states will be committed to an active role in the physical development of onshore port and industrial areas to serve the inland water transportation mode and may even be influential in national policy issues that affect waterways.
