The Northwest Regional Port at Cates Landing: An Economic Analysis
Located in northwest Tennessee, the proposed infrastructural development of the Port of Cates Landing will alter economic dynamics in the three-county region (Dyer, Lake, and Obion). The proposed infrastructure investment of $20 million in the Port of Cates Landing will create a truly intermodal transportation system in the region. The Business and Economic Research Center (BERC) at Middle Tennessee State University has been retained by the Northwest Tennessee Regional Port Authority to assess the contributions of the proposed investment in the Port of Cates Landing to the economy of the three-county region and its surrounding areas. The BERC's estimates include the (1) benefit-cost ratio and (2) regional economic impact of the proposed investment.
