DOT provides update on Baltimore bridge collapse recovery

April 23, 2024
DOT’s Multimodal Freight Office finds that the Patapsco River cleanup remains on schedule, and East Coast ports have been able to accommodate diverted cargo.

The collapse of Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge left major logistical challenges, as it closed off access to the Port of Baltimore. Federal agencies continue to clear out nearby waters and move cargo.

The U.S. DOT held a meeting Friday between its Multimodal Freight Office, the National Economic Council, and East Coast port leaders to discuss the latest bridge collapse response efforts. The meeting provided updates on ongoing cargo diversions and the port cleanup process.
