The Port of Iberia recently secured $8.5 million from the State Bond Commission for the Acadiana Gulf of Mexico Access Channel. Craig F. Romero, Executive Director of the Port of Iberia stated, “Our state legislative delegation was very instrumental in securing this Bond Commission approval.” This puts almost $30 million available for this project from the state. “It is a step closer to becoming a reality,” said Romero. “The recent announcements of growth and expansions happening at the Port of Iberia show the increased business potential for the Port and Acadiana with additional water depth.”
