Improvements to Business Park

Quonset Development Corporation (QDC) will use a $22.3 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant from the US Department of Transportation to support wind energy manufacturing, enhance logistical operations, and improve marine highway infrastructure at the Quonset Business Park. Putting people to work and making investments in long-term economic growth, this project represents some of the best aspects of the Recovery Act.
