Conneaut Port is owned and operated by the Pittsburgh and Conneaut Dock Company (P&C Dock) of Canadian National Railroad. Use of the dock has slowed with the decline of the steel industry.[1] According to US Coal Exports, the port has a coal-handling capacity of 9 million short tons per year (approximately 8.17 million metric tonnes).[2]

Port Infrastructure Progam

The city of Conneaut has embarked on a multi-year plan to revitalize the waterfront area, with hopes to increase the port's economic utility.[3] In 2020, the city received a US$19.5 million U.S. Department of Transportation grant to aid the redevelopment initiative, formally called the Port Infrastructure Program.[4]
