Abstract:

The report documents the port development response of the Arkansas-Oklahoma region to the development of the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas-Verdigris Waterway. Since the initiative for port development comes from state and local levels, the strategy and plans which evolve present significant clues about potential impacts from the regions perspective. The report surveys seven major port areas and thirteen individual ports. Data is presented on physical attributes of the ports, public and private investment and financing, and management arrangements. Author
