NEWBURGH - A local business and area leaders announced the first steps toward recreating the Port of Newburgh.

Newburgh-based Steelways Inc., along with Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, state and city officials were on hand this morning on the Newburgh waterfront to unveil the plans for $16.5 million project.

Steelways Inc. wants to refurbish the port in order to supply materials and transport decking for the new Tappan Zee Bridge. The company, founded in 1968, is a steel design and fabrication company that has been involved in many extensive steel projects such as replating the Throgs Neck Bridge and the construction of many U.S. Navy vessels.

Included in the $16.5 million project is $3 million in new payroll for initial construction, which could provide numerous opportunities for job creation and economic growth.
